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. With less than 2 µL of your precious stock solution, mosquito LV can prepare a full dilution curve and stamp it out into multiple assay plates in a matter of minutes.
Minimise compound wastage and maximise screening output
mosquito LV offers an accurate and easy to use solution to miniaturising any assay within an automated, high throughput setting. With mosquito LV, you can use smaller volumes of precious compound with no risk of cross-contamination. This results in cost savings and allows more extensive screening. mosquito 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.
Bring the benefits of positive displacement pipetting into your lab
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
- 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 third party laboratory instrumentation, including robotic plate handlers, stackers and bulk liquid handlers, to achieve walk-away operation in many application areas.

What our customers say
Using the mosquito [LV] 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.
