  • Application Area: protein crystallization

  • mosquito® Crystal Nanolitre Protein Crystallisation Robot

"The Mosquito is an excellent choice for those wishing to miniaturize and/or increase the throughput of their macromolecular crystallization trials. We have been happy owners of Mosquito since 2006 and in my opinion this device is perfect for the multi-user facility that we operate. There is little to go wrong with the instrument, partly because we have a single dedicated 'super-user' who can fine tune parameters on the odd occasion that things require a tweaking. Inveterate "fiddlers" (and we all have them in our labs) can do little damage. It is so easy to use that even Profs can use Mosquito! It runs and runs and runs, and in our experience of TTP Labtech, the after-sales care is excellent and cannot be faulted. Overall, TTP is a great company to do business with, and their Mosquito is a truly excellent, best-in-class product. "

"The mosquito nanodispensing system is very easy to use, we can setup a crystallization screen in 3 minutes. We need only a few micro liters to test hundreds of conditions of crystallization."

  • mosquito® Crystal Nanolitre Protein Crystallisation Robot

"The robot is very easy to use, and the intuitive software makes it easy to train new users. The disposable tips make the robot an ideal instrument for a multi-user environment, no need to flush sample tubes or wash dispensing heads. The robot is also fast. "

  • mosquito® Crystal Nanolitre Protein Crystallisation Robot

"This equipment has changed our life of doing crystallization. It is easy to use, very fast and it only needs a small amount of sample! We do not hesitate to set up plates anymore. It is also very reproducible and robust. In summary, a must have" in a crystallography lab."

  • mosquito® Crystal Nanolitre Protein Crystallisation Robot

"The Mosquito instrument is the iPad of robotics. In few words, it is really easy to use and program, fast to perform tasks and don't require a lot of maintenance (robust). It's the perfect instrument for doing high throughput screening of crystallization conditions. It will perfectly integrate in lab environment since it just requires a bench and a power point. "

"Very easy to use on day to day basis, very easy to program, intuitive and valuable in a multi-user environment. The only reason it doesn't get 5 for ease of use is that changing tip reels and calibration cannot be done without training."

Description

mosquito® Crystal.

mosquito Crystal is the protein crystallographer’s favourite liquid handler! It makes protein crystallography screening faster, more cost-effective and quite simply easier than ever before. It brings together speed, accuracy and high precision pipetting of nanolitre volumes with zero cross-contamination from a disposable tip. These automated liquid handling features have multiple benefits in the field of protein crystallography.

mosquito Crystal offers:
  • automation – rapid automated plate set-up for all standard crystallisation techniques: sitting drop, hanging drop, microbatch, seeding and microseeding
  • accuracy and precision – extremely accurate and precise pipetting in the 25 nL – 1,200 nL range
  • reproducibility – unrivalled reproducibility down to 25 nL
  • zero cross-contamination – positive displacement technology reduces contamination and eliminates slow wash steps
  • cost savings – the ability to use smaller volumes of valuable protein resulting in cost savings and enabling a larger number of screening conditions to be studied
  • minimal configuration changes for different experiments – eliminates the need for instrument configuration changes when changing techniques or liquid viscosities
  • multiple aspiration – multiple aspirations with mixing before a single dispense, which is essential for automating additive screening
  • robust and reliable – has outstanding reputation for robustness and reliability even in multiuser labs, and very low maintenance
  • ease-of-use – simple and intuitive software with fast set-up

TTP Labtech’s mosquito Crystal can be used for the following applications:
  • all protein crystallisation screening techniques:
    • sitting drop
    • hanging drop
    • microbatch
    • microseeding
    • additive screening
  • other low volume assays that could benefit from high throughput automation, e.g. PCR, compound screening
