Get the most from your precious protein samples
With mosquito Xtal3, you can use smaller volumes of precious protein sample with no risk of cross-contamination. This results in cost savings and allows more extensive screening. You can automate all the popular protein crystallization screening techniques (hanging drop, sitting drop and
Perfect drop formation for optimal protein crystallization
mosquito’s unique nanolitre liquid handling technology can perform multiple aspirations before a single dispense, which is essential for automating seeding and direct addition of additive screens to the drops. You can even dispense a combination of solutions simultaneously, with additional mixing if required, ensuring perfect drop formation for optimal protein crystallization.
Microbatch screen set-up
Built for pure 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.
Humidity control at your fingertips with up to a 90% reduction in drop evaporation
Sample evaporation can be a problem when dispensing very low volumes or volatile samples, causing inconsistent drop volumes, especially when environmental conditions and local humidity vary. mosquito’s active humidity chamber reduces experimental inconsistencies by allowing users to control the relative humidity (RH) of each experiment.
Intuitive by design
Our all new application led software for protein crystallography 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. Now with optional touch screen.
Enhance your protein crystallization research
We also offer additional components to enhance your protein crystallization screening, such as a humidity chamber and spool cover.

What our customers say
The mosquito is a wonderful addition to our University. It can do in less than 5 minutes what takes me to do in more than 8 hours. The nanolitre liquid handling capabilities produces drop size and placement speed that are not humanly possible.
