Figure 3
A colony-picking robot uses a video camera (a) to map the positions of colonies plated out on agar trays (b). 2500 single colonies are picked per hour with a pneumatic pin tool (c) into the wells of microtitre plates filled with growth medium (d). In this way, members of a random library can be spatially separated and each clone provided with a unique identification number.
