TTP Labtech has launched a scientific competition to win one year's free use of two powerful and intuitive instruments, the Mosquito Nanolitre Pipettor and the Acumen Microplate Imaging System.
Scientists from any research programme are invited to submit a short proposal, detailing how these technologies will benefit their research application and experimental workflow.
Winners will get the opportunity to experience the mosquito and Acumen technology first hand.
The Acumen system for cell-based imaging is capable of collecting and analysing more than 40 images per second.
With applications ranging from cell-colony counting, 3D cell migration assays and RNAi assay analysis, Acumen enables the generation of fast, high-quality imaging data.
The Acumen Mosquito nanolitre volume liquid-handling platform is able to transfer liquids of varying viscosities with zero cross-contamination.
Positive displacement technology provides precise and repeatable pipetting for assay miniaturisation in a range of applications.
Candidates can enter as many research proposals as they feel applicable for either instrument.
