List of Equipment
Formulator 34 (Formulatrix) – Automated pipetting system for preparation of customized crystallization conditions. Is a next-generation liquid handler specifically designed for Protein Crystallography that uses patented microfluidic technology to dispense up to 34 different ingredients.
Mosquito XTal3 (SPT Labtech) – Liquid handling for setting sitting drop, hanging drop, microbatch, bicelles, microseedind and additive screening experiments. It uses positive-displacement pipetting technology in the 25 nL – 1,200 nL volume range.
Rock Imager 1000 (Formulatrix) – Automated imaging system equipped with UV/visible light for differentiation of salt and protein crystals. The experiments are maintained for up to 4 months in the system with a programmed visualization routine following the Fibonacci serie for 55 days (0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 and 55). After this period, the plates can be analyzed as required by the user.
