QPix 400 Series Microbial Colony Pickers
The QPix™ 460 provides this experimental ability by screening and picking microbial libraries in a high-throughput manner. The QPix helps them increase both the speed as well as volume at which protein-protein interactions which are discovered, enabling them to rapidly expand the high-quality interactome maps.
The QPix™ 400 series of microbial colony pickers offer you the unique option to simultaneously detect colonies and quantify fluorescent markers in a pre-screening step before picking. Our QPix systems are used worldwide in over 600 installations in research institutes, sequencing facilities, biotech and pharmaceutical companies. QPix robotics developed a famous reputation for reliability and accuracy in sequencing centers during the Human Genome project.
More than just colony pickers, these systems enable scientists to:
- Automate workflows from sampling and spreading to picking.
- Pick the right colonies every time
- Efficiently manage large, diverse populations for: protein expression, biofuel research, enzyme evolution, phage display, DNA sequencing, library generation and management.
