mosquito® Xtal3

Incredible power at the heart of your liquid handling processes

Protein crystallisation without compromise

  • SPT Labtech mosquito xtal3 automated liquid handler

    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 for mosquito Xtal3

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
  • Protein crystallisation without compromise
