replica plating

Dear Chlamydomonas researchers,

We are currently trying to isolate arg7 transformants that are sensitive
towards various toxic compounds that give rise to a redox or oxidative
stress. In this process we encounter the problem to create nice
reproducible replica plates on which the individual colonies can be seen,
particularly on multiple replicas of the same plate.

Has anyone experience with this and could give us some hints and advice?
Has anyone experience with a stamp device to transfer isolated
transformants from a microtiterplate onto an agarplate?

Thanks in advance,

Rik Eggen,
