Whole Animal Feeding Flat (WAFFL): A High-throughput Platform for the Automated Handling of Flies

Drosophila is well-suited organism to be use in high-throughput studies due to their short, defined life cycle and genetic tools. However, current high-throughput fly methodologies are not ideal. They can require a significant amount of fly manipulation, the use of anesthetics, and a large quantity of drug or materials.
Benefits 
Minimal fly handling facilitates multiple treatments -Less food required (and therefore, less drug!) -Allows for testing a single fly per well (96 options in one plate) -Compatible with standard (96 well) equipment and automation robots
