PIXL is Singer Instruments high-Precision Colony Picking Robot that enables you to reliably pick your colonies, regardless of organism, with >99% TRANSFER EFFICIENCY.
Pick to and from agar and liquid
Using a variety of plate types
Customise your workflow with plate sectoring.
Designed for versatility
Scrape, stir, and adjust mixing profiles to optimise the transfer of the most tenacious organisms.
Turn on its fluorescent LEDs and PIXL will quantify and allow selection for wtGFP, sfGFP, mCherry, tagBFP, Venus and many other fluorescent markers.
“The integration allows us to develop a fully walk-away colony picking process.”
Wilson Lui, Automation Engineer at Aether.
The PickupLine picking polymer, as well as automatic detection of the agar surface ensures gentle picking of colonies – this means no cell splashing (a common problem in the industry), and much lower risk of introducing biological or ethanol contamination to your precious samples.
Agar to agar: 99.78%
AVERAGE PINNING PRESSURE
<9/mm (This is the most important specification when evaluating a colony picker – understand why here)
Over 33,000 sterile, disposable tips in a single, low-cost PickupLine.

2.5” 32GB MLC SSD (0~70°C) – Can be upgraded to:
128GB / 256GB / 512GB
4GB DDR3 Memory
DC-PWR-MIOe – 9V 36V power module
1x White Channel & 5x Fluorescence Channels

A truly collaborative arm
With 4-axis movement allowing total flexibility.
Built in barcode scanner
Consistently identify your plates.
Automatic collision detection and recovery and even corrects itself for location discrepancies.
Automatic plate removal
Removes and stores the lid while the plate is in use, re-lidding and returning the plate afterwards.
Compatible with random access and stacked plate hotels
Allowing you to get the optimal setup for your high-throughput workflows.
Typical SBS plate capacity 60-120.
PIXL with Momentum allows a flexible high-throughput high-precision colony picking system that can scale and adjust to future demands. Additional plate hotels, incubators, or other systems can be added in the future.
Build your workflows, load your plates, PIXL with Momentum will handle the rest.
