The HydroSpeed is Tecan’s advanced plate washer, designed for quick, parallel washing of entire 96- and 384-well plates. This avoids time differences between the wells for uniform results. In addition, the HydroSpeed provides full control of wash power for optimized washing of cells, beads and ELISAs.
The HydroSpeed plate washer is ready for ELISA washing, as well as gentle washing of adherent and weakly-adherent cells. It supports soak steps with microplate shaking, as well as buffer switching. With full on-board operation via the easy-to-use touchscreen interface, the HydroSpeed really does offer you power and control for all your cell, bead and ELISA washing applications.
Cell Protection™ extra gentle drop-wise dispensing to minimize cell detachment
Reduced turbulence via online optimization of dispense position
Typical cell recovery of ≥85% using tuneable aspiration settings
Fast bead settling thanks to a patented design using two magnets per well
High bead recovery rates (typically ≥90 %) via tuneable aspiration settings
Optional vacuum filtration for non-magnetic bead washing
Anti-Clogging™ active prevention of needle blockage for reliable operation
Automated rinsing and soaking of wash head for easy handling
Easy X-change wash heads for straightforward ultrasonic cleaning
Loosely adherent cell lines, such as P815 and HEK293, are commonly used for a wide range of research applications, but are challenging to wash for typical plate washers.
Discover the difference with Tecan's HydroSpeed expert cell washer:
Automated ELISA processing using a microplate washer is now a routine task for many laboratories, yet crystallization of wash buffer within the aspiration/dispense needles remains a common problem. The HydroSpeed's innovative Anti-Clogging function actively prevents needle clogging by automatically rinsing and soaking the wash head when the washer is idle for a user-defined period.
Highlights of Anti-Clogging function include:
Multiplexed assays using magnetic beads are becoming increasingly popular for a variety of applications, but achieving good wash results without loosing beads remains a challenge. The HydroSpeed washer protects magnetic beads by settling them away from the needles during aspiration, achieving low residual volumes while maintaining high bead recovery rates.
The HydroSpeed plate washer is available with a selection of wash heads optimized for cells, beads and ELISAs. An innovative Easy X-change system allows intense cleaning of the wash heads in an external ultrasonic bath:
The HydroSpeed provides optimized magnetic carriers for a range of bead-based assays:
The HydroSpeed plate washer offers an advanced vacuum filtration module for filter washing of non-magnetic beads:
Tecan's HydroSpeed can be configured as a 4-in-1 microplate washer, providing you with increased productivity and sparkling results by accelerating key washing processes for a range of applications in 96- and 384-well plates, such as:

The HydroSpeed includes a predefined plate library, with typical settings for commonly used 96- and 384-well plates, allowing rapid set up of new protocols.
Integrated pressure-based liquid level detection (pLLD) system informs operator when waste bottle is full.
pLLD avoids the risk of blockage common to swimmer-based LLD systems mounted in the waste bottle.
An optional, liquid level detection system (LLD) is available for monitoring the filling levels in the liquid bottles, as well as the waste bottle.
The HydroSpeed plate washer incorporates an array of sensors, to ensure secure and reliable integration into automated platforms, such as Fluent and Freedom EVO.
Additionally, it is compatible with a range of third-party plate stackers, such as the S-LAB™ from paa, for semi-automated processing of plates.
In combination with HydroControl software, it is designed to meet the requirements of FDA 21 CFR part 11, including electronic records, electronic signatures and audit trail functionality.
