The mosquito genomics leverages positive displacement technology to provide scientists with accurate and repeatable nanolitre to microlitre pipetting, irrespective of liquid viscosity or environmental conditions. A suite of enhanced features now make the instrument even easier to use, allowing academic and industry scientists to more effectively harness its volume miniaturisation and automation capabilities and overcome cost and productivity bottlenecks in molecular biology and genomics applications.

Joby Jenkins, director of product strategy at TTP Labtech said, "The mosquito genomics has an established track record of helping next-generation sequencing (NGS) laboratories realize the substantial cost and time savings of miniaturisation and automation. The improvements we have made reflect TTP Labtech’s deep commitment to meeting the evolving needs of our life sciences customers and continuing to enhance their research outcomes."

The hardware and software upgrades encompass:

Get training in Lab Crisis Preparation and earn CEUs.One of over 25 IACET-accredited courses in the Academy.
Lab Crisis Preparation Course
  • Protocol wizards for fast and easy set-up
  • Improved SPRI bead clean-up designed specifically for miniaturized protocols
  • Enhanced cooling to protect sample and reagent integrity
  • New ergonomic design features to improve the user experience

Dr. Klaus Hentrich, product manager for genomics at TTP Labtech added, "Together, the new features significantly improve our customers' experience of using mosquito genomics. For scientists working with single-cell or bulk RNA, or with sensitive enzymatic reagents, the new cooling option feature provides essential control over temperature-reliant workflows. The bead clean-up process is particularly helpful in miniaturised single-cell and bulk library preparation workflows. Finally, from a software development standpoint, the protocol wizards synthesize the vast domain knowledge of our team of application scientists to simplify and standardize the process of establishing miniaturized workflows. By increasing the efficiency of genomics workflows, we want to help scientists maximise their results and accelerate discovery."

TTP Labtech is showcasing the new mosquito genomics at the NGS and Clinical Diagnostics Conference on November 7th and 8th,  2019 in London. To learn more about mosquito genomics, visit or email to arrange a demo.
