This report covers the measurement and evaluation of the pinning pressure achieved by the PIXL Precision Colony Picker, produced by Singer Instruments.
The pinning pressure was measured using a bespoke test procedure, which replicated the standard pinning functionality of the PIXL. Over the span of 80 separate pinning events the PIXL achieved an average pressure of 6.97 ± 0.74 g/mm2, with a maximum recorded pressure of 8.531 g/mm2.
