mosquito LV offers highly accurate and precise multichannel pipetting from 25 nL to 1.2 µL and simplifies assay miniaturization and compound handling workflows with automated, high throughput operation.
The easy-to-use instrument enables significant time and reagent savings through low volume pipetting and ultra-low source dead volumes for a rapid return on research investment.
mosquito LV is the perfect liquid handler for low volume serial dilutions, minimizing waste and maximizing throughput. Using less than 2 µL of the precious stock compound, mosquito LV prepares a full dilution curve and dispenses it into multiple assay plates in minutes. With the ability to aspirate, dispense and even mix in any SBS plate type or format, mosquito offers exceptional versatility even at low volume across screening applications.
mosquito LV harnesses innovative positive displacement pipetting by using disposable micropipettes with individual pistons to deliver exceptional accuracy and precision, irrespective of liquid class.
Disposable pipettes guard against cross-contamination and assure the integrity of your assays and the quality of your research outcomes.
The user-friendly instrument and software interface are accessible for even novice users, minimizing operator training time and simplifying setup.
Our liquid handling portfolio provides you with accurate and repeatable nanolitre to microlitre pipetting, every time, irrespective of liquid class or environmental conditions.
Our liquid handling instruments harness innovative technology to streamline workflows and accelerate research. Robust, reliable, and easy to use, our products overcome tough technical challenges and enable researchers to focus on the best science.
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. mosquito LV gives researchers the confidence to handle a range of liquid types.
mosquito LV offers low volume automated pipetting in the 25 nL to 1.2 μL range, to a very high level of performance demanded by challenging applications like extended range serial dilution. The instrument combines outstanding accuracy with an average of less than 3% error throughout the volume range and unrivalled precision with average CVs of 3%.
Our application led software combines usability and functionality, with an intuitive user experience tailored to each scientific application.
Through collaboration with scientists, our software team develops and enhances the instrument UI to provide the optimal user experience and facilitate adoption into novel application areas.
For compound handling workflows, a software wizard performs all serial dilution and plate replication calculations, and generates a-ready-to run protocol of liquid transfers for flawless execution.
mosquito integrates seamlessly with a wide variety of laboratory instrumentation, including robotic plate handlers, stackers and bulk liquid handlers to extend capabilities and further streamline workflows.
