Miss the AGBT17 meeting? Here’s a recap!

We were thrilled to present  mosquito® HTSHV and X1 at this year’s Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) General Meeting was held in Florida (13-16 February), USA!

The meeting brought together technology, software, applications, data resources and public policy. It also provided a forum for exchanging information about the latest advances in DNA sequencing technologies, experimental and analytical approaches for genomic studies, and their applications.

mosquito liquid handlers for genomics


  • superior accuracy and precision coupled with high speed transfers using true positive displacement pipetting technology
  • reduce sample and reagent requirements to 20 pg or less of nucleic acid and up to 50-fold reduction in reagents
  • no cross-contamination, no carryover with our low-cost disposable pipettes
  • be in control with the simple software interface by easily creating new protocol

application areas

Low volume liquid handling with mosquito HTS, HV and X1

  • synthetic & molecular biology: High-throughput, miniaturized reactions for PCR, cloning and DNA assembly with mosquito
  • nucleic acid sequencing: Low cost, low volume library preparation for single cell analysis, including DNAseq, RNAseq and normalization
  • gene expression profiling: Cost-effective, high-throughput analysis of mRNA with rapid qPCR set-up
