Per the Prize Parameters, direct contact with the specimens is not permitted, either via human intervention or the technology. The position of the specimen on the pin may not be manipulated in any way. If a pin is moved, then likely the specimen will come along with it. However, if a pin is removed from its original location by mechanical means, it must be returned to the precise original location and position. Also, specimens must not be damaged in any way. It is up to Entrants to develop a technology that meets all of the competition parameters and rules.
Please be sure to review the complete Contest Rules and Materials (https://beyondthebox.aibs.org/documents.html), including scoring, which takes into account perceived risk of damage to the specimens. Also noted in the Complete Rules document is that specimen pins must be #2 insect pins.
