mosquito HTS makes assay miniaturisation for high throughput screening (HTS) simple, leading to significant savings on precious reagents and time. Both instruments are ideal for multi-user labs as you can just walk up to either one and use it.
Using mosquito HTS means you can prepare “assay ready” plates containing test compounds direct from library stocks or dilution plates, as the disposable micropipettes guarantee zero carry-over between samples. mosquito HTS can aspirate from any source plate leaving dead volumes of less than 0.3 μL both critical cost areas to consider when capitalising on the savings of assay miniaturisation for high throughput screening assays.
You can easily program mosquito HTS to perform traditional serial dilutions by aspirating, dispensing and mixing across a plate using miniaturised volumes ranging from 25 nL 1.2 μL. This allows you to effectively perform hit confirmation from high throughput screening assays using multiple compound concentrations.
