"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

"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

"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."

Application Area: Macromolecular Crystallography
mosquito® Crystal

"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. "

mosquito® Crystal

"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
