Featured applications

NGS library preparation

Reducing the volume of NGS library preparation by 5-fold to 25-fold with mosquito leads to dramatic cost savings. A wide range of kits can be miniaturized, for example robust Nextera XT library preparation in only a few microlitres total volume has been demonstrated.

Magnetic bead clean-up

With mosquito® HV genomics, nucleic acids can be cleaned up and size-selected with magnetic beads at high throughput, which complements miniaturized library preparation processes. A 384-well magnetic block has been specifically designed for this purpose.

DNA normalization and pooling

NGS protocols often require the concentration of input DNA or the sequencing libraries to be normalized. Single-channel mosquito® X1 delivers highly accurate normalization and pooling in the nanolitre to low microlitre volume range.

A versatile open platform for miniaturized NGS library preparation

Sequencing technology evolves rapidly. As new improved protocols and kits emerge, it is crucial to keep lab processes up to date. mosquito® is a liquid handler compatible with standard SBS plates, using an open software format that makes it exceptionally easy to program your own protocols. mosquito provides any genomics lab or core facility with the power and flexibility to stay cutting-edge for many years to come.

The technology: positive displacement pipetting

Unlike traditional liquid handlers, mosquito liquid handling robots use positive displacement pipetting technology. This superior pipetting mechanism allows transfers in the 25 nL – 5 µL range with high precision and accuracy. Importantly, it offers the ability to pipette even liquids with high viscosities, such as enzymes in 50% glycerol or genomic DNA, accurately and precisely. Furthermore, the use of disposable mosquito tips ensures gentle sample handling and zero cross-contamination.
