All available washing methods are compatible with IDvet kits:
- squeeze bottle
- manual comb system
- automatic washers
We suggest that you validate the internal washing system before testing high sample numbers.
Generally, systems which increase the contact time between the wash solution and the plate increase washing efficiency.
It is possible to include a soaking time between two steps (serum and conjugate or conjugate and substrate). Generally, the quality of the wash step is equivalent, or increased, with a soaking step. This observation is particularly true for milk tests, where the perfect dissolution of fat may require increased contact time between the wash solution and the plate.
