Genome-wide screening is easy when you have the right tools.
You need a collection library – which we don’t provide (but we can tell you who does)! And you need a precision method of pinning colonies – this is why we created the ROTOR.
The ROTOR uses a robotic arm and sterile, ready-to-use replica plating pads to pick up samples of cells from culture plates. The robotic arm then moves to a new ‘target’ plate and deposits the cells. The operator selects and uses an appropriate program from a simple, drop-down menu.
