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. 

Technologies of QPix Pins & Heads

  • Gridding Head (Red)

    Gridding Head (Red) - 96- and 384-pin Format

    • 96- and 384-pin format
    • Pins are not fired; they only retract into the head when they hit a solid surface
    • To "spot" liquid from source plate onto agar or filter
    • Requires use of gridding pins

    Picking Head (Black)

    Qpix Picking Head (Black)

    • 96-pin format
    • For picking from agar plate to liquid destination plate
    • Requires use of picking pins

  • Re-arraying/Replicating Head (Blue)

    Blue Re-arraying/Replicating Head

    • 96-pin format; padding within the head for softer pin return
    • For transferring from liquid source plate to liquid destination plate
    • Requires use of re-arraying pins
