With mosquito® Crystal you can use smaller volumes of precious protein sample with no risk of cross contamination, resulting in cost savings and allowing more extensive screening. You can automate all the popular protein crystallization techniques; hanging drop, sitting drop, microbatch as well as seeding or additive screening plate preparation, without the need to make setup changes to the instrument.
mosquito’s accuracy and repeatability means you can place drops centrally in the sub-wells of sitting-drop plates every time. Precise drop placement facilitates automated analysis, thus making your protein crystals easier to identify.
TTP Labtech’s mosquito Crystal also allows you to create several multi-component drops per well, even in 96-well hanging drop set-ups so you can assess different protein concentrations at the same time. mosquito's unique nanolitre liquid handling technology can perform multiple aspirations before a single dispense, which is essential for automating additive screening. You can even dispense a combination of solutions simultaneously – with additional mixing if required – ensuring perfect drop formation for optimal protein crystallization.
