Great Instrument, cannot imagine our lab without it
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area: Drug Discovery

"This is an amazing instrument. It offers the performance of an acoustic dispenser but at a much lower price point. It is a good instrument for a smaller lab that needs to dispense in the 1uL – 25nL range and allows the use of any plate type. For us, we needed something that could fit into our workflow and didn't require the need for changing plate types and the Mosquito was the perfect choice."

  • Application Area:Crystallography setup, PCR setup, reagent dispensing

"Our mosquito is utilized in a variety of applications and, simply put, it just works. Its key attributes are reliability, precision and ease of use. The only downside is the price of consumables (tips), however it's performance with difficult to handle liquids offsets that con."

  • Application Area:Compound Dispensing

"For medium throughput applications, the single use needles dispense compound with no worry about carryover. The instrument does not take up a large amount of space, and the CVs for small volume dispensing are great."

  • Application Area:eADME

"The mosquito is for us the best choice for making serial dilutions in less than 1µl with a very good accuracy and precision. Further assay ready plates (4 Plates with 250nl) can be easily made with the system (same tips) with a precision less than 2%. We have integrated the mosquito into a Tecan EVO200 platform (first world wide), see also the Tecan Journal 1/2014 Pages 20 + 21."

  • Application Area:A reliable and accurate pipetting device for sub microliter range

"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."

"I've been using the TTP Mosquito in our lab since 2009, recently we acquired another one, and now we have two in use (96 and 384-well format). I must say that this is the best liquid handling unit I am working with so far. With a bit of patience, you can repair most of the possible errors by yourself, and program method you want (without cherry picking, our models do not have this function). It is Clean, precise, reproducible, and user friendly."

mosquito® HTS offers an accurate and easy to use solution which can be applied to miniaturising any assay within an automated, high throughput setting leading to significant savings on precious reagents and time. In conjunction with mosquito HV, the scale of assay miniaturisation can be expanded to cover the range of 25 nL to 5µL.


Benefits of mosquito HTS include:

  • accuracy – outstanding accuracy with < 2% error throughout the volume range
  • precision – unrivalled precision with CVs of < 3% throughout the volume range
  • speed of set up – quick set-up with no washing
  • flexibility of sample type – precise pipetting across a wide range of liquid viscosities with no changes in instrument setting required
  • serial dilution wizard – simple programming using a serial dilution wizard incorporated into the software
  • minimal dead volumes – access all of your sample: mosquito HTS leaves dead volumes of under 0.3 µL per well
  • compatibly – compatible with all SBS format 96-, 384- and 1536-well plates
  • integration options – can be easily integrated with the mosquito plate processor (MoPP) into a larger screening system
  • 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
  • small footprint – bench-top instrument
  • ease-of-use – simple robust and walk-up-and-use bench-top instrument


mosquito HTS can be used for miniaturizing a wide range of applications which require a volume range of 25 nL – 1.2 µL, including:

  • preparation of “assay ready” plates for compound screening
  • serial dilutions in miniaturised volumes for generation of concentration response curves
  • plate reformatting, including transfer between different plates types (96-, 384- and 1536-well plates)
  • plate replication
  • molecular biology based applications such as: next generation sequencing, DNA, RNA extraction and PCR/qPCR preparation
