We’re revolutionising liquid handling

Our liquid handling portfolio provides you with accurate and repeatable nanolitre to microlitre pipetting, every time, irrespective of liquid viscosity or environmental conditions.

High performance technology

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.

True positive displacement pipetting

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 gives researchers the confidence to handle a range of liquid types.

Low volume accuracy and precision

mosquito LV genomics offers low volume automated pipetting in the 25 nL to 1.2 μL range, to a very high level of performance, suitable even for serial dilution or quantitative PCR setup. It combines outstanding accuracy with an average of less than 3% error throughout the volume range and unrivaled precision with average CVs of 3%.

Intuitive by design

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.

Extend capabilities with workflow integration

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.

The mosquito Plate Processor (MoPP) is an off-the-shelf compact bench top workcell using the popular PreciseFlex PF400 plate handling robot and Revolution scheduler to simplify integration with third party equipment.
