Overview of QPix Pins and Heads

Our specialized QPix™ 400 Series pins are designed to pick, plate, and replicate a wide range of microorganisms such as bacteria, phage, and yeast cells. 

Different microorganisms can have different colony morphologies. Our unique portfolio of organism-specific pins come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures, thus ensuring maximum viability and subsequent growth for each colony that is picked.
