Random Colony Picking

Pick random colonies from circular, rectangular, or square plates to agar or liquid target plates. Customise your workflow with loads of sectoring, layout, and mixing options.

Re-array Colonies

Pick colonies from user-defined locations and place them at user-defined positions. This is completely customisable, and can use several plate types. Select exact colony coordinates, or traditional well locations.

Colony Detection

Image and detect your colonies of interest and export experimental data without running a workflow.

Aluminium Frame Support

The tubular aluminium frame supports the vinyl chamber and is mounted on a padded
plywood base that is covered with a foam pad and heavy vinyl. Hold-down rods secure vinyl to the base.


Flexible Glove Ports

The oval-shaped glove ports are constructed of a special highly flexible vinyl frosted to prevent cracking and gas leakage at bend points.

Equipment Entry Port

The large equipment entry port, designed for straight forward PIXL installation, is capped and secured in place after equipment is installed.
