Automated Cherry Picking with the Genie GLS1

Overview

Cherry picking is the process of selecting specific samples to be transferred to a new piece of labware. Automating cherry picking saves labs time, effort, and accuracy. The Genie Cherry Picking protocol transfers user-specified samples from a 96 deep well plate to a 96 flat bottom assay plate. At runtime, users are asked to input the volume of cherry picked samples to transfer and select which samples to transfer from the source plate.

Cherry picking is useful in many applications such as:

  • High throughput screening
  • Small molecule drug discovery
  • Microbiology transfection
