ROTOR+ Pinning and Transfer Efficiency

ROTOR+’s transfer efficiency is extremely high across all RePad and array density combinations. Transfer is proven to be 99.68% in S. cerevisiae and 99.94% in E. coli.
Contamination Rate
<0.03%
Optimised Pinning Pressure
Standard: (find out the standard) (This is the most important specification when evaluating a Microbial Array Pinning Robot – understand why here) Pinning pressure can be customised within protocol settings.
Consumables
Pinning Pads and RePads
Singer RePads are high-quality polymer replica-plating pads that transfer colonies between plates with exceptional repeatability.
Singer PlusPlates
All Singer PlusPlates and RePads come in gamma-irradiated packs, sterile and ready to use.

PINNING
Pinning accuracy: ± 50 microns
Pin-tip size: 0.75 mm diameter
Pins are Stainless Steel so can be repeatedly autoclaved. The working end is long enough to reach the bottom of a standard multi-well plate and it weighs 765 mg

POWER SUPPLY
24V DC but works off the ROTOR, no additional supply needed.

Trace everything


ROTOR+ remembers last used settings; store templates; and logs user actions and parameters automatically.

Train everyone fast


90% of the functionality can be learned in as little as 10 minutes, without instruction

Colony Screening Suite Features

High-density pinning

Pick colonies of interest to 96 or 384 targets using PIXL and upscale the density to 1534 or 6144 using ROTOR+

High-throughput cell plating

Both ROTOR+ and PIXL support streaking from a liquid or agar source. This protocol automates the high-throughput plating of microbial organisms, allowing researchers to plate 96 samples onto one target plate efficiently.

Random colony picking

Pick randomly distributed (or arrayed) colonies by filtering for size, circularity, proximity, colour, and other measurements using PhenoBooth+’s Colony Picking Upgrade.

Condense your library

Pin up to 6144 colonies on each plate. Meaning use >60x fewer plates per screen: Gain >60x more storage space in your lab; >60x cost reduction on expensive reagents
