Available Services and Technologies

The laboratory covers all the steps involved in protein crystallization including (i) preparation of crystallization solutions, (ii) setup of sitting-drop vapor diffusion experiments and (iii) automatic image capture with remote access and data storage that uses an UV system to detect protein crystals only.

Services and technologies

  • Support users in crystallization experiments;
  • Perform sample quality control (by SDS-PAGE);
  • Perform crystallization trials with over 500 initial conditions;
  • Provide two storage temperatures for crystallization: 4 ºC and 18ºC;
  • Establish crystal optimization conditions with robotic system.
