mosquito® LV

Incredible power at the heart of your liquid handling processes

Cost effective assay miniaturisation with mosquito HTS, the nanolitre liquid handler

  • Key Features

    • Simplified assay miniaturisation with a user-friendly instrument easily accessible low volume pipetting
    • Eliminate cross-contamination disposable pipettes for ensuring assay integrity
    • Maximising reagent use and preserving precious sample ultra low dead volumes as low as 0.2 µL
    • High throughput plate preparation rapid plate to plate pipetting motion and tip exchange
    • Aspirate, dispense and even mix in any SBS plate type or format versatile at low volume
    • 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

Where higher liquid dispensing volumes are required, please refer to the mosquito HV .

  • Formally known as mosquito HTS; mosquito LV offers an accurate and easy to use solution for assay miniaturisation within an automated, high throughput setting

    Benefit from minimal dead volumes (under 0.2 μL), significant time and reagent savings

    Applications include: assay-ready plates for compound screening, serial dilutions, plate reformatting and replication

    Pipetting range 25 nL – 1.2 μL
