Swift Analytical, in partnership with Imrali Inventions Ltd, presents the world’s first Slide Cleaner which can wash and enable the re-use of the leading brands of image-based plastic disposable automated cell counter slides in less than 30 seconds. The iWashTM Slide Cleaning System is also safer, faster and more efficient to wash disposable slides than manually washing re-usable slides.
The main reasons for using automated cell counters with disposable cell counting slides are their ease of use, more accurate results than when performed by a human operator, significant time savings and the elimination of biohazards generated during the washing of traditional haemocytometers. However, the relatively high cost of disposable slides has hindered automated cell counters to be adopted by many laboratories around the world. On the other hand, re-useable slides introduced to overcome this problem are expensive, fragile and still require manual wash & dry steps which are time consuming and generate biohazards like the traditional haemocytometers. Moreover, the single-use, disposable slides increase the plastic biohazard waste produced in the labs.
The patented (UK patent ref GB2562081) iWash Slide Cleaner comprises of custom washing and dryer modules specific to the manufacturer of automated cell counter.
Chose from the extensive range of iWash Slide Cleaner options including the full range of Nexcelom® cell counters, the Biorad TC20®, Invitrogen Countess II®, NanoEntek’s Eve® and Arthur® and Olympus R1® cell counters.
Unfortunately due to a change in slide design during May 2021, the following are no longer compatible with the iWash slide cleaner – Logos Biosystems Luna®, Luna II® and Luna® Fluorescent Cell Counters.
Each iWash system is shipped with wash solution and silicon defoamer to enable washing for up to 5000 cycles. Additional solutions are available from your local distributor.
