RapidPick Lite offer high-throughput automated colony-picking solution.
The system is designed to pick from SBS-compatible omni-trays, segmented colony plates, 24-well, 96-well and 384-well plates and petri dishes. It will inoculate SBS-compatible omni-trays, 24-well, 96-well and 384-well deepwell and standard height plates.
A Robotic arm and stackers allow automated plate handling in order to automatically load and unload the colony picker with plates.
In addition to allowing researchers to automate the selection and growth of cells grown on a colony plate, RapidPick Lite will also retain a record and image of the each colony and which culture plate/well it inoculated. It provides the users an indispensable, unbroken data path from original colony to final result, eg. tracking a clone to a specific expressed protein.
RapidPick Lite uses a camera to capture a single image of the entire dish or plate, and then uses advanced image analysis to allow users to create selection profiles, maybe to select the maximum number of colonies, or discriminate among them for favored traits.
RapidPick Lite software allows to automate colony picking, cherry picking, re-arraying and plate replication.
RapidPick Lite is simple yet robust picking system that combines easy operation with high speed and durability.
