Mosquito nanodispenser

The Mosquito LCP (TTP Labtech) can be used for crystallization of both soluble and membrane proteins. It pipettes crystallization drops at nanolitre scale, from 25-1200 nl, whereas a conventional drop size is about 1-2 µl. The possibility of pipetting nanodrops enables a much larger number of crystallization trials from one batch of purified protein than before. The instrument uses disposable positive displacement pipettes to avoid contamination.
