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