System Overview.

The University of York Funnel Feeder system was installed in 2009 at the university’s Centre for Novel Agricultural products. The system contains an analytical balance with a custom pan designed to take any standard well plate. A funnel mounted on the system axes moves over the wells in a predetermined order allowing the operator to feed plant material into each well.
