Application Note: CrystalQuick X: Optimized Platform for In-Situ Analysis of Protein Crystals
30 October 2012

Automation of the working steps involved in X-ray analysis of protein crystals significantly improves the success rate and reduces the time required for structure determination. In-situ analysis is often compromised by crystallization plates generating significant background scatter and impacting the quality of the data. In this application note from Greiner Bio-One the unique features of the CrystalQuick™ X, a 96 well microplate especially suited for in-situ and UV analysis of protein crystals, are described. Its open geometry allows data to be collected directly in the plate within an angular range of up to 80° and an ultra-thin-walled well bottom minimizes background scattering significantly.
