Multi-Blot Replicator, 48 pins on 9 mm centers, 3.15 mm pin diameter, 22 mm long, delivers ~3ul hanging drop
The VP 407AH is the preferred pin tool for Yeast researchers who want to inoculate larger volumes (~3 ul) onto an agar Petri dish. Also for use in colony to colony transfers on agar or other surfaces. The pins are spaced to fit into half of a 96 well microplate yet are small enough to inoculate an 85 mm Petri plate. It is made with 48 stainless steel pins of the same length pressed into an anodized aluminum base to facilitate a flat contact. It can be alcohol flame sterilized or autoclaved. The pins are on 9 mm centers, (96 well format) 3.15 mm in diameter, 22 mm long and carry a hanging drop of ~3 ul
Testimonial from postdoctoral fellow at a major university: “….regarding the product VP 407AH. I have been using this pin tool and I think it is fantastic.”
Intially designed to transfer inoculums of microorganisms from 96 microplates to agar filled petri plates for culture, but our customers have also used it in agar to agar, liquid to dry and liquid to liquid applications.
