CrystalQuick™ X for in situ X-ray analysis (ref.: 609890)

NatX-ray offers for sale this new crystallization plate especially dedicated to in situ UV and X-ray analysis (produced by Greiner Bio-One). A unique design and an ultra thin well bottom, in combination with superior material properties, render CrystalQuick™ X especially suitable for in situ X-ray analysis and crystallography data collection.

Among 8 plates tested, usable on classical crystallization robots, the CrystalQuick™ X is ranked first in a rescent publication from SLS:
R. Bingel-Erlenmeyer et al., "SLS Crystallization Platform at Beamline X06DA-A Fully Automated Pipeline Enabling in Situ X-ray Diffraction Screening", Cryst. Growth Des. 2011, 11, 916-923

Another publication shows amazing results obtained with the CrystalQuick™ X plate on virus crystals at DLS:
D. Axford et al., "In situ macromolecular crystallography using microbeams", Acta Cryst. (2012) D68, 592-600

CrystalQuick™ X is characterized by excellent optical properties. Crystal harvesting - if required - is made easy due to inclined well walls and a small well depth. Besides bright light microscopy, the plate features the use of polarized and UV-light for crystal analysis.

With two flat bottom crystallization wells per reservoir CrystalQuick™ X makes it possible to test 192 samples per plate.

The plate features an alphanumeric well numbering containing a bar (0.1 x 0.5 mm) for a quick estimation of crystal size.

As the footprint of CrystalQuick™ X is conforming to the ANSI/SBS 1-2004 standard, the plate is compatible with conventional automated systems.
