accuracy and precision, irrespective of liquid class
true positive-displacement pipetting
Serial dilutions the mosquito way; low volume and high speed
mosquito is changing the way serial dilutions are done; the ability to aspirate from ultra low volumes of sample (dead volume as low as 0.2 µL), dispense and efficiently mix, makes it the perfect liquid handler for low volume serial dilutions. With less than 2 µL of your precious stock solution, mosquito HTS can prepare a full dilution curve and stamp it out into multiple assay plates in a matter of minutes.
Minimise compound wastage and maximise screening output
mosquito HTS offers an accurate and easy to use solution to miniaturising any assay within an automated, high throughput setting. With mosquito HTS, you can use smaller volumes of precious compound with no risk of cross-contamination. This results in cost savings and allows more extensive screening. mosquito is simple to use and allows you to reformat from any plate type or format to another, it can even access low profile microtubes, and hence eliminate the need for intermediate mother plates.

Built for performance
Our liquid handling instruments use innovative technologies within products to provide
We produce robust, reliable and easy to use products that overcome difficult technical challenges so that you can focus on solving the scientific ones.
Each of our disposable micropipettes has its own individual piston, not an air gap or system liquid, offering true positive-displacement pipetting with no risk of cross-contamination.
Low-volume accuracy and precision
- outstanding accuracy: with an average of less than 3% error throughout the volume range
- unrivalled precision: CVs of 3% (average across the volume range)

Intuitive by design
Our software is as focused on usability as it is on functionality. We strive for an intuitive user experience that matches the requirements of each scientific application. Through collaboration with scientists, our software team develop and enhance the instrument UI to provide the optimal user experience and facilitate adoption into novel application areas.
Versatile workflow integration
mosquito liquid handlers have been integrated with a wide variety of other laboratory instrumentation, including robotic plate handlers, stackers and bulk liquid handlers, to achieve walk-away operation in many application areas.
The mosquito Plate Processor (MoPP) is an off-the-shelf compact bench top workcell centred around mosquito. The integration system uses the popular PreciseFlex PF400 plate handling robot and Revolution scheduler allowing a variety of third party equipment to be integrated with any of our mosquito liquid handlers.
Minimise waste and maximise throughput; with less that 2 µL of your precious stock solution mosquito can prepare a full dilution curve and stamp it out into multiple assay plates in a matter of minutes.
Plate reformatting and replication
mosquito HTS enables easy and accurate reformatting between 96, 384 and 1,536-well microplates, including replicating mother plates directly into high-density, low-volume assay ready plates within 1.5 minutes.
Acoustic ready source plate set-up
mosquito HTS complements acoustic screening workflows as it can share the workload by creating acoustic ready serial dilution or mother plates offline. This improves workflow efficiency and throughput as well as reducing dead volumes.
High-throughput MALDI-TOF MS
mosquito HTS is uniquely suited to the setup of automated MALDI mass spectrometry biochemical screening. Accurate and reliable low volume sample and matrix spotting, enable true label-free detection of native substrates and products in functional biochemical screens.

What our customers say
Using the mosquito HTS and the functionalities of its software we were able to setup a very robust and accurate IC50 dilution series process in the 384 well plate format. We have been supplying this service to our customers for over a year with continuing positive feedback. A great device for dilution series and plate replication in sub microliter volume ranges.
