Probing Many Pnis

I need to calibrate about 40 electronic boards which are going to be used in a physics experiment. In each of the boards I need to probe more than 50 pins with a picoscope. I have automated code for the calculations but the problem is that each time I need to physically move the probe to connect it to the specific pin that I'm calibrating, which is really boring and will take many hours. Do you have any suggestion to make this automated? I was thinking connecting 50 wires to the pins and then connecting all of them to the probe. But I need to find a way to read only a specific pin at the time. Is there any way to do it?

Thank you.
