Automate dilution plating and spiral sample plating on the Freedom EVO® 75 with SciRobotics’ PetriPlater add-on.
Automate colony-picking and inoculation of media with the Freedom EVO and SciRobotics’ Pickolo™ Colony-Picker.
This application package provides state-of-the-art hardware and software to automate your colony-picking experiments in an easy and cost-effective way. The Robotic Manipulator Arm™ brings the source plate to the light table, and a high resolution camera takes a photo. The Pickolo software then analyzes the image and selects colonies for picking according to your individual criteria. The template script provided makes it simple to set up the picking process while maintaining the freedom to define a variety of different colony selection criteria, micro-organisms and agar types.
Why reinvent the wheel? This colony-picking workstation allows you to fully automate your experiment with predefined picking profiles, or select individual colonies that ‘look good’ to you for picking during the run.
