Achieves Picking Results Comparable to Manual Processing

Do you have problems with the difficult and unstable procedures during the picking process? By automating cell collection, seeding, and pipette tip replacement, CELL PICKER stabilizes the operations of picking up and removing cell colonies, processes typically reliant on an operator's skill level. Using the easy-to-operate software, images of the cells can be automatically obtained before and after collection.

Ensuring Traceability

Standardization of Procedures Using Methods

CELL PICKER operates in accordance with pre-configured methods. With methods, the applicable cell type and type of container to use can be configured, enabling support for a variety of cultivation and testing conditions. Methods can be saved, so procedures utilizing the same conditions time can be implemented at any time.

Effortless Procedural Records

Procedures can be checked and recorded without burdening the operator due to functions that automatically take images, link the image name and operating conditions, and check the seeding conditions.

Images of Cellular Colonies Can be Obtained before and after Collection Using the Automatic Imaging Function

effortless procedural records

Images acquired automatically are saved with the name formatted as “date_time_serial number_well number*_before/after.” In addition, summary files are output in which the operating conditions are linked with the image names.
