I work in Daniel St Johnston's lab here in Cambridge,  and presently I am
attempting to do a screen where we hope to screen 1000 lines a week, 
fixing then staining embryos with X-Gal.   We made 18 well blocks from
Roehren tubes,  and had 18 well staining dishes made for us,  that fit
conveniently onto the 18 well tubes. It's not automated,  but makes the
staining of a 1000 different lines reasonably straightforward. - e-mail me
if you want more details.
