mosquito® crystal

Incredible power at the heart of your liquid handling processes

The crystallographers’ favourite liquid handler

  • SPT labtech mosquito crystal automated liquid handling system

    Key Features

    • Reduced set-up time and training requirements walk-up and use technology which even novice users can master quickly
    • Robust day-to-day performance even in heavy use proven reliability with no blocking or clogging
    • Protein samples go further and screen consumption is vastly reduced access volumes as low as 10 nL on multi-aspirate
    • Faster screening of crystallisation space for less sample rapid and accurate drop set-up across a wide viscosity range
    • Flexibility to easily switch methods to suit individual projects able to set-up all traditional (non-LCP) protein crystallisation experiments
    • Accuracy and precision, irrespective of liquid class true positive displacement pipetting

Positive Displacement Dispensing Technology

SPT Labtech disposable micropipette tips for positive displacement liquid handling

SPT Labtech’s mosquito range of liquid handlers use their novel positive displacement dispensing technology. This has several advantages for users including:

  • Zero cross contamination – using disposable micropipette tips with stainless steel pistons
  • Unrivalled accuracy at low volumes – nanolitre and microlitre
  • Not affected by liquid viscosity – no air gap
  • Excellent repeatability
  • mosquito® crystal makes protein crystallography screening faster, more cost-effective and quite simply easier than ever before

    It brings together speed, accuracy and high precision pipetting of nanolitre volumes with zero cross-contamination from a disposable tip

    Applications include: protein crystallography set-ups e.g. hanging and sitting drop, additive screening, microseeding, microbatch, bicelle

    Pipetting range 25 nL – 1.2 µL
