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

This is not a microscope! It is a colony picker. As such it will not detect sub-cellular or low levels of expression.
NOTE: This is a working example from a Singer Instruments customer. A typical setup includes a custom entry port on the rear and the smaller one on the side.
Chamber Depth 45” (111cm)
Support Base is 48”
Operational clearance for rear port is +10” (25cm)
1 Year warranty is supplied as standard.
Please note: the cabinet is a standard configuration for PIXL only, any additional items required would be quoted by COY directly.
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.
