Protein Crystallisation

Detailed knowledge of interactions between the structure and function of biomolecules is fundamental for biological, medical and pharmaceutical research. A reliable method is the X-ray structure analysis of protein crystals.

In order to show three-dimensional molecular structures, the proteins must first be crystallised. Since every protein is different and a variety of factors influence protein crystallisation, the optimal conditions are usually tested with high-throughput technologies (pipetting robots). Greiner Bio-One has specially developed microplates and accessories of the CrystalStar series to meet the requirements of high-throughput crystallisation in a short time and with relatively small amounts of protein. Techniques such as vapour diffusion (sitting drop, hanging drop) and microbatch under oil can be carried out effectively.

It's the simplest way to know everything. We'd love to get in touch.
