Single cell genomics

Cost-effective plate-based workflows for single cell genomics

Automation and miniaturisation are key to make high throughput single cell studies practical and affordable. Plate-based workflows with flow-sorted single cells allow the analysis of rare cell types and subpopulations characterised by cell surface markers. High-profile publications show how mosquito liquid handlers have been enabling a variety of cost-effective plate-based protocols for single cell research.

A versatile liquid handling platform for single cell protocol development

Single cell genomics is an exciting and very dynamic field. New, improved chemistries and protocols are published in rapid succession, while previous methods become outdated. This poses a challenge for any single cell lab, requiring equipment with the flexibility to adapt to rapid change. mosquito® provides this flexibility, being a versatile, freely programmable, open system. mosquito empowers scientists to establish and customise their miniaturised protocols of choice, and achieve breakthroughs in single cell research output.

The technology: positive displacement pipetting

Unlike traditional liquid handlers, mosquito liquid handling robots use positive displacement pipetting technology. This superior pipetting mechanism allows transfers in the 25 nL – 5 µL range with high precision and accuracy. Importantly, it offers the ability to pipette even liquids with high viscosities, such as enzymes in 50% glycerol or genomic DNA, accurately and precisely. Furthermore, the use of disposable mosquito tips ensures gentle sample handling and zero cross-contamination.
