  • Patent number: 10456789
    Abstract: A method of washing an array of pipette tips (94) with residual biological material includes lowering the array of pipette tips (94) into a wash basin (20) that includes an array of flush ports (22). A vacuum is generated such that the residual biological material in the array of pipette tips (94) is evacuated through the array of flush ports (22). A wash cycle is performed that includes raising the array of pipette tips (94) from the wash basin (20), filling the wash basin (20) with a primary wash fluid, lowering the array of pipette tips (94) into the wash basin (20), miming a pipette tip cleansing cycle, and generating a vacuum such that the primary wash fluid in the array of pipette tips (94) and the wash basin (20) is evacuated through the array of flush ports (22).
