SciRobotics Colony Picking & Plating

ALE PreciseCount

Fully Automated Colony Counting System

The PreciseCount fully automated colony counting system from Atlantic Lab Equipment provides fast, accurate, walk-away microbial colony counting for your synthetic biology, cell biology, and molecular biology applications. We’ve combined the advanced SciRobotics AutoCount colony counting system with a Precise Automation PreciseFlex PF400 collaborative robot arm into a compact standalone system to automate your colony counting needs. The system counts up to 240 plates/hour and tracks plates with 1D or 2D barcodes. System capacity is 240 plates and can be expanded with additional optional storage, or can be integrated with automated incubators or other storage systems.

Pickolo™ Colony-Picker

The SciRobotics Pickolo™ colony-picker add-on for the Tecan Freedon EVO liquid handling platform provides advanced, fully automated microbial colony picking from agar plates. Both Petri-dish and a variety of multi-well plate formats can be used. Colony picking parameters can be defined using a wide range of criteria including colony size, shape, and/or color.

The Pickolo colony picker add-on installs easily on the Tecan Freedon EVO platofrm in minutes, allowing the liquid handler to be used for different applications. The Pickolo software integrates directly with Tecan Freedom EVOware® software to enable colony picking as a method along with other liquid handling operations.

PetriPlater™ Robotic Spiral Plating and Streaking

The SciRobotics PetriPlater™ add-on device and software for the Tecan Freedom EVO liquid handling platform enables affordable, high-throughput, fully automated sample inoculation onto Petri dishes. Microbial culture samples can be introduced with either the “spiral plating” or “spiral streaking” methods.

The PetriPlater is designed to integrate seamlessly with Tecan workstations so that liquid-handling, serial dilution, and colony-picking tasks can be accomplished on one system,  providing a powerful automated solution for Petri-dish inoculation. In addition, the PetriPlater can be combined with the Pickolo to create a complete system for all of your colony plating and picking needs.
