Laminar Wash Mini System

Avoid the centrifuge and improve data quality and biosafety with the Laminar Wash MINI System.

The Laminar Wash MINI System employs the only suspension-cell sample preparation method that eliminates the centrifuge and the problems it introduces. It is an affordable bench-top instrument designed to produce the most quantitative and reproducible results for single cell sequencing, flow cytometry and mass cytometry.

Laminar Wash Mini System

Innovative Nozzle Design & Plate

The Laminar Wash™ 16-well strip plate consists of an array of hydrophilic spots surrounded by a hydrophobic surface, which functions as a virtual wall that separates each spot.

Intuitive LCD Interface

Easily customize wash parameters.

Compact footprint

Easily fits on lab bench or in biosafety hood

What the Mini delivers:
  • Upgrade from the centrifuge — centrifuge-free, laminar flow based washing system
  • Enhance cell retention
  • Reduce hands on time
  • Improve cell viability and reduce stress on cells

Technology Overview

See the Laminar Wash MINI in Action

With the Laminar Wash technique, cells undergo a gentle wash without added stress, allowing a higher retention of cells for acquisition and cell sorting. In addition, cell surface markers are not modified and unbound antibodies are washed off efficiently, producing cleaner and better segregated data. 

Each spot can process from a single cell to as many as 10 million cells without the mechanical stress and cell losses associated with centrifugation.


I ran my first couple experiments on the Curiox Laminar Wash MINI last week and I am never going back to centrifugation!  It is great!
