Bridging the gap between nanolitres and microlitres with mosquito HV
easily accessible low volume pipetting
simplified assay miniaturisation with a user-friendly instrument
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 transfer and tip exchange
versatile at low volume
aspirate, dispense and even mix in any SBS plate type or format
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. mosquito HV can rapidly and reliably prepare serial dilutions in the 1 - 10 µL range, and even stamp them out into multiple assay plates saving your precious stock solutions and time.
User-friendly and flexible; low volume pipetting at your fingertips
mosquito HV provides you with highly accurate and precise pipetting in the nL to µL range, picking up where traditional liquid handling falls down. mosquito HV 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
mosquito HV offers low volume pipetting in the 500 nL to 5 µL range, to a very high level of performance, suitable even for serial dilution.
- 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; mosquito HV can rapidly and reliably prepare serial dilutions in the 1 - 10 µL range, and even stamp them out into multiple assay plates saving your precious stock solutions and time
Plate reformatting and replication
mosquito HV 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 HV 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.
Viscous liquid pipetting
mosquito HV’s positive displacement pipette tips make it ideal for the automated handling of viscous samples such as glycerol, PEG and plasma. Additionally, low surface tension liquids such as alcohols and solvents can also be pipetted accurately, without any liquid classification.
