96 well CrystalQuick X: Microplate especially suited for in-situ X-ray and UV analysis of protein crystals

Greiner Bio-OneGreiner Bio-One, a leading international technology partner for the diagnostic and pharmaceutical industry, presents the 96 well CrystalQuick X plate. This microplate is the first of its kind to be specifically tailored to the requirements of X-ray structure analysis of protein crystals directly in the plate. It is also optimal for UV screening of crystals.  

The new microplate dramatically improves the results of in-situ crystal analyses. Its open geometry allows data to be collected directly in the plate within an angular range of up to 80°. An ultra-thin-walled well bottom minimises background scattering significantly. Thanks to the excellent optical properties of CrystalQuick X, the new microplate is ideal for bright-light microscopy as well as applications involving polarised and UV light. 

With two flat-bottom crystallisation wells per reservoir, CrystalQuick X makes it possible to test 192 sitting drop samples per plate. The plate features alphanumeric well coding and an additional scale (0.1 x 0.5 mm) which enables the quick estimation of crystal size. The footprint of CrystalQuick X conforms with the ANSI/SBS 1-2004 standard. The plate is therefore compatible with all conventional automatic systems.  

Greiner Bio-One developed this new 96 well microplate in collaboration with Beamline FIP-BM30A (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, ESRF, Grenoble, France). CrystalQuickTMX is part of the CrystalStarTM product line from Greiner Bio-One GmbH.
