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 X1 is A Single Tip Nanolitre Hit Picking System

    It offers true walk-away cherry picking from any individual well in any type of plate with high throughput

    Applications include: rapid, automated hit-picking, spotting on to slides or custom devices with non-standard well pitch

    Pipetting range 25 nL – 1.2 µL or 500 nL – 5 µL
