PIXL: Colony Picking
Join the colony picking revolution & increase your precision & sterility with PIXL
An ultra-reliable and super-easy-to-use microbial colony picker. It automates imaging, colony recognition, colony selection, and picking; from Petri dishes to multiwell plates.
PIXL uses the freshly-cut end of a sterile PickupLine to transfer microbial colonies. It eliminates the requirement for washing cycles and the associated chance of contamination.
How does PIXL Work?
PIXL is developed in collaboration with leading synthetic biology incubators, SynCTI and SynbiCITE, and industrial partners SynthACE. All of whom are unhappy with existing colony picking options. We listened. We collaborated. We welcome: PIXL.
– Be easy to use by anybody in the lab
– Adapt to your protocol
– Trace and export every plate, colony and parameter

This is not a microscope! It is a colony picker. As such it will not detect sub-cellular or low levels of expression.
