E-Clip pins are fixtured with an E-Clip in a groove in one end of the pin. These pins are either 1.58 mm, 2.36 mm, 3.18 mm or 4.77 mm in diameter. The larger diameter pins carry more liquid and are preferred by scientists inoculating yeast on to agar plates. We offer pins of longer lengths for scientists using deep well blocks. The FPFS2 pins have the E-Clip groove part way down the shaft to allow it to be used as a spring loaded floating pin useful in sampling frozen specimens. We offer six styles of E-clip Pins: the FP pin which has a chamfered tip leading to a point, the FP6 which has the point cut off and delivers a larger drop of inoculum. The FP pin delivers a smaller amount of liquid due to the point on the end of the pin. It is well suited for making high density arrays on membranes and agar surfaces. The flat tip FP6 pins are used to transfer larger volumes of liquid and the FP11A, FP12, FP12A and FP13 pins which transfer the largest volumes are used by customers transferring yeast to agar plates. All the E-Clip pins (FP, FP6, FPAM, FPFS2, FP11A , FP12, FP12A and FP13 pin can be used with the Robot style double floating frames, or with double float frames that have been converted to manual Multi-Blot replicators with our conversion kits (BGPK or BGPKL).
