Microplate Readers and Microplate Washer

MIDSCI carries a line of low cost microplate readers and microplate washers that don’t sacrifice quality, performance, nor reliability.

Are you looking for a microplate reader and washer? You’ve come to the right place. We carry microplate readers and microplate washers that are right for you. 
If you need a compact and economical microplate reader that works with your computer without a hitch, then the Chromate microplate reader is a good choice. 
Yet if you want some convenient artificial intelligence on your side, then take a look at the Accuris microplate reader instead. It has an intuitive screen and provides measurement data, interpretations, and calculated analyses on the screen after a reading. 
Of course if it’s a microplate washer you’re looking for, then the Stat Fax 2600 is superb. Other than the expected features for a microplate washer (and more), it’s also convenient to use and extra quiet! 
This is just the tip of the iceberg. We’ve got a lot more to offer.


CappWash plate washer is an ideal elisa plate washer for small scale work. Simple, compact and inexpensive. Fitting into even the tightest budget, Capp plate washer is a perfect alternative to dependence on department washers for washing micro plates and strips. Capp elisa plate washer works most effectively with a vacuum source.

Capp elisa plate washer requires no programming nor electrical wiring connections. It is made of a high-grade stainless steel and polypropylene, making it fully autoclavable and highly resistant to aggressive chemicals.

The unique Two-in-One Design of Capp elisa plate washer gives each tube 2 functions - delivery of the washing solution to the well and aspiration of the used solution back to the waste collection bottle. This is possible as each tube of Capp elisa plate washer consists of an inner tube that releases the distilled water washing solution into the wells for rinsing while the outer tube vacuums away the liquid upon completion of the washing procedure.

The washing process with Capp plate washer is as simple as it can be: Simply lower the tubes into the well then push the knob to fill and release the knob to empty. Now repeat for the desired amount of washings and move on to the next row.

Capp elisa plate washer is suitable for all well types. The plate washer can be set to the desired depth very easily by simply adjusting the two screws found on either side of the tubes
