Colony Picking


CUGI employs two state-of-the-art Genetix Q-bots for colony picking, library replication, and filter gridding.

The colonies require plating on Genetix Q-Trays at a density of 2000-3000 total colonies per tray. The machines are capable of blue/white color selection as with IPTG and X-Gal or black/white selection based on the new Sigma X-Gal. The cost includes Q-plate preparation, media, bar-coded label and freezer storage boxes for the plates. Please contact CUGI to order this service.
