Imrali Invention



We have been using the iWash Slide Cleaner from Imrali Inventions now for 3 months. It is extremely easy to use and cleans the slides faultlessly - both for the Countess slides as well as the Quantum bacterial counter sildes. In another month we will have recuperated our intitial capital investent on the iWash and the savings over a year will run into thousands of Euros. We are grateful for innovators such as Imrali Inventions for inventing simple, cost-effective devices that cut down the ever increasing costs of conducting high quality research - well done! We would have no hesitation to recommend the iWasher to ALL laboratories worldwide - it will pay for itself in only a few months!

Le laveur/sécheur de lames est un outil très utile, surtout si on souhaite utiliser des lames jetables avec un compteur automatique de cellules, sans pour autant générer encore et encore des déchets plastiques. C’est une initiative à saluer dans un monde de laboratoire où l’on produit quotidiennement de nombreux déchets plastiques. Dans le labo, il a très vite été adopté : peu encombrant, très facile et rapide d’utilisation, efficace, on récupère rapidement des lames propres et sèches, prêtes à être réutilisées. De plus, le SAV est à l’écoute et réactif : nous avions des problèmes de bulles dans les lames, qui ont pu être résolus grâce à la fabrication d’un nouveau tampon de lavage « à façon ». Il y a une vraie volonté de satisfaire les clients avec cet appareil.

In the lab its hard to avoid the use of plastic. In order to work effectively we get through a huge amount of plastic. The slide washer has been an excellent addition to our lab to help reduce the amount of plastic we get through daily without any drop in performance. We are now able to reuse slides countless times whilst still having accurate cell counts. Great piece of kit!

We use the slide washer on a daily basis in our Tissue Culture lab. It works very well to clean the cell counting slides, meaning that we can re-use the slides over and over. It's not very easy or practical to save on plastic waste in a biological sciences lab, but finally this is one approach that works.

The slide cleaner is a nice incentive to reduce laboratory waste and costs. I hope that the device will stimulate fellow researchers to take a more sustainable approach whilst working in the lab. I am using the slide washer on a daily basis and I can re-use the slides without any issues. ImraliInventions is improving the device over time and is always around for support in case the machine needs a little fix.

The iWash® Slide Cleaner is a sustainability breakthrough in lab consumable usage. Instead of using hundreds of slides a week we are now using only a few. This means savings in cost and helping to save the planet. The slides come completely clean after washing and are like new, so there is no adverse effect on data at all. we buy our slides in bulk to reduce the cost of the slides but then we realised the iWash cost less than the bulk of the slides and it helps reduce the plastic waste of our tissue culture facility. Also making our lab greener by reusing the slides is an added bonus of having the iWash. Our lab members are keen users of the iWash and it is very easy to use. Now, instead of using hundreds of slides per week we only use a few and we have saved a lot of money since we started using the iWash

The innovative iWash® Slide Cleaner has integrated into our cell culture workflow seamlessly; it is easy to use and adopted well by researchers. There is minimal maintenance, uses minimal bench space and helps towards our sustainable targets. The cost benefits by reusing slides allows our funding to go further, as well as being eco-friendly

Since purchasing the iWash® slide washer, we have reduced the amount of slides we purchase drastically. We recently had an issue with our supply of slides resulting in us being unable to purchase slides for almost 1 month. Because of the slide washer, our Tissue Culture work did not suffer and continued at the usual level of productivity as we were able to reuse our slides. The slide washer is very user friendly which I why I think it has become so popular in our lab.

I have been routinely using the iWash slide washer in our tissue culture facility at Barts Cancer Institute for several months. It really is easy to use and very fast at cleaning and drying the plastic slides we use for our cell counter. It only takes 30 seconds to wash and dry a slide and I’ve not experienced any problems with reusing washed slides for cell counting on the Countess II cell counter. Thanks to the iWash slide washer, the slides can be reused multiple times and I’ve probably saved using dozens of new slides and therefore money that could be better spent elsewhere. This is a great product which saves both money and plastic waste.

As for the slide washer. We love it. Its quite honestly amazing. Since its purchase we have gone through less than 2 boxes of slides. And to be honest, we could have gone through less, but trying to implement some recycling habits with my staff is harder than I would like. Regardless, less than 100 slides used in over 100 days since the slide washer’s is an amazing feat. Especially with 16 people in the lab, of which 13 do daily tissue culture, and we have been running full at full capacity. The device will most likely pay itself off before the end of the year. We are very pleased.

We've been quite satisfied with the iWash® so far, and have used it to wash hundreds of slides.

I had not used a slide cleaner in previous labs, and I am surprised because this device is one of my current lab’s essential devices. It is very easy to use. The washing is so fast that it is not a problem to run washing/drying cycles while working on my experiments. I like the fact that we can save plastic waste by re-using slides and extending their lifetime.

The iWash Slide Cleaner is very easy to use and it helps us to save money. We have developed a system in which everyone keeps track of their own slides and I have noticed that I can re-use my slides over 5 times without compromising results. This represents big savings for us when the comparable cost of not having a slide cleaner is multiplied by the number of users in our lab. I would highly recommend this small device for labs who want to save time by using an automatic cell counter but also money in buying counting slides.

I began to regularly use the iWash in our lab in February 2021. One month into being a frequent user, I sent a suggestion for an upgrade to the machine to Dr. Ahmet Imrali. I explained to him that, in the scope of cellular work, sometimes having to dry the slides by pressing on them (especially when one has several slides) costs some time where I could not take care of my running experiment. In this regard, a lid for the dryer would be of big help. Only 20 days later, a new dryer with a built-in lid arrived to our lab. I, personally, was very surprised and excited about the fast implementation of my suggestion. The new dryer with a lid made my work more efficient because the whole system was washing and drying slides by itself with minimum hands-on time.

Communication with Imrali solutions and their customer support has always been outstandingly fast and efficient. We have contacted them on multiple occasions and every time, Imrali Inventions has helped us to solve the issues, either in-house or by taking care of our devices themselves. They are very competent, fast, and helpful with short or long questions. We are very satisfied with their customer support. Even if we are located on different continents, shipping of reagents, upgrades, and maintenance of our devices has been uncomplicated and timely.
