BAC Clone Picking

BACPicking_Machine2Using QPix and QBot robotic colony picker, the colonies are individually picked and grown in a freeze-thaw safe medium in 96-well or 384-well plates. These plates are securely sealed first with an sterile aluminum film and then covered with lids for extra protection. The plates are safe for -80°C storage.


We also accept ‘PICKING ONLY’ projects. Customers may prepare the library and send the plates/library to us for picking.


Shipping instructions for PICKING ONLY projects

  • Spread the plates with library clones at a density of 2000 to 2500 clones per 22.5 cm x 22.5 cm Q-Tray.
  • Grow the clones for 12 hours followed by transferring them at 4°C.
  • Seal the plates with parafilm
  • Wrap each plate with saran wrap (thin plastic wrap)
  • Place the bubbled foam at the bottom of the carton. Now stack the plates in the batches of four plates per rack and place them in the carton box.
  • Place additional foam on top of the plates.
  • Ship the plates in the evening at RT for overnight delivery in the morning.
  • After receiving, we will inspect the plates and place them at 4oC or incubator as needed.
