G-Rob 2D is derivated from CATS
(Cryogenic Automated Transfer System, see
G-Rob 2D consists in a robot-based system that positions the
crystallization plates directly in the beam for screening.
This crystallization screening technique is the best way
to get relevant information on your crystals,
such as space group, cell parameters, mosaicity in a very short time.
There is no need for crystal fishing and cryo-protection.
Standard or optimized crystallization plates can be used, as well as micro-chips.
