ChemWell is a completely open system that is easy to program.
Set up assays, routine jobs, quality control, panels, even index calculations to suit your laboratory. A password system and log of changes protect your programs. Choose from a large selection of monitoring and reporting styles.
Precise pipetting of low volume specimens, elimination of carry over, and careful control of temperature are all essential for reliable results.
ChemWell can make pre-dilutions, however this is seldom necessary since a high level of precision is achieved even with a 2uL sample. Carry over is eliminated without the need for disposable pipet tips. A unique wash cup assures cleaning inside and out. In addition, extra washes may be programmed for any particularly sensitive assay. With a completely open system you can program additional wash volume, or increase the number of washes, or even direct the probe to pick up and dispense a probe cleaning solution after each specimen.
ChemWell can process EIA at ambient temperature or 37C. An incubator is provided for biochemisty wells to assure precise kinetic reactions. The probe is also temperature-controlled to deliver 37C reagents. An optional reagent cooling accessory (RCA) is available to protect reagents from ambient heat. Removable racks can be refrigerated, pre-loaded and ready for the
ChemWell is truly two instruments in one.
Set up a full or partial plate of enzyme immuno assays (EIA) and program Chem Well to automatically make dilutions, dispense reagents, incubate, wash, read, and prepare final reports. Alternately, you can program ChemWell as either a batch analyzer or a continuous loading random-access analyzer for performing clinical biochemistry tests.
ChemWell uses standard off-the shelf microwells for all reactions.
Uncoated microwells make low volume sample cups for biochemistry. They can also be washed for re-use. Performing biochemistry assays in microwells offers many advantages. Among them are increased throughput and decreased cost per test. ChemWell reads vertically using 4 optical channels and 8 wavelengths.
