TTP LabTech has announced that it is showcasing its mosquito® LCP liquid handler at the annual meeting of the American Crystallographic Association, Chicago, Illinois, July 24-29. For the first time since the product launch crystallographers will have the opportunity to see a live demonstration of the novel mosquito LCP instrument, the company says.

TTP LabTech informs that the mosquito LCP has been designed to facilitate the crystallization of membrane proteins, such as G-protein coupled receptors, by offering a fully automated solution to lipid cubic phase (LCP) screening. It incorporates an auto-homing positive displacement syringe for repeatable dispensing of LCP in addition to the standard disposable, positive displacement mosquito tips that guarantee zero cross contamination. This automation system enables LCP screening to be performed with ease and increases the throughput of crystallization set-ups.

Joby Jenkins, mosquito Product Manager, TTP LabTech commented, “Following the late 2009 launch, mosquito LCP has generated great excitement and interest within the crystallography community.”

He continued, “There are a number of technical difficulties that are regularly encountered when working with the LCP method such as liquid viscosity, the accurate dispensing of the LCP and the precise positioning of the drop. The mosquito LCP has been developed to overcome all these challenges and we are very pleased with the outcome”.
