50 TS Washer
The 50™ TS Washer offers functionality that is unsurpassed in its class. The color touchscreen provides a visual interface that makes creating protocols fast and intuitive. Its performance for conventional plate washing is excellent, and it is also ideal for cell-based assay washing and for processing biomagnetic or polystyrene bead and vacuum filtration protocols. Used in conjunction with the 800™ TS Absorbance Reader or other detection system, the 50 TS brings convenience and consistently high quality results to your laboratory’s plate washing workflows.
The 50 TS can be used for ELISA protocols, such as the one described in this Application Note. It is an ideal partner to the 800 TS Absorbance Reader for many colorimetric assays.
These are just a few examples of the many important applications for 50 TS. Visit our Applications page to see more.

These qualities make BioTek the #1 plate washer brand in the world. As an ISO certified and FDA registered Medical Device manufacturer, BioTek understands the importance of accurate, repeatable results, low maintenance, and reliability in the clinical and research laboratory.
Applications for the 50 TS extend far beyond simple dispense and aspirate routines typical of many ELISA processes. Optimize fluid delivery for gentle cell-based assay washing, or run bead-based processes with the available biomagnetic and vacuum filtration modules.
Routine maintenance ensures continued reliable washing and excellent assay performance. The 50 TS offers pre-defined, automated maintenance routines including daily and overnight protocols. These keep the fluid path clean and prevent buildup of salt, protein or other material that can block manifold tubes and cause inadequate washing.
