Spiral Plater on a Liquid Handler

PetriPlater is a Petri
dish spiral plater

Enabling fully automated Petri dish spiral plating from any liquid sample on your liquid handler

Samples are directly spread on the Petri dish using
the robot tips

PetriPlater generates an accurate and repeatable plating pattern everytime while also providing flexible control over volume and spiral density.

Different plating modes for different application

Normal spiral plating with constant concentration results in the most colonies available for picking. Useful when the concentration of the sample is known.

Multi Segment Plating for plating multiple dilutions
on a single dish

This enables faster plating while saving costs of Petri dish consumption.

Multi Segment Plating results in different concentrations in different segments

Ensuring enough colonies for counting and isolated colonies for picking and isolation
