X-ray Crystallography Platform
From Molecules to Crystals to 3D Structures
The X-ray Crystallography Facility at the Department of Chemistry and the Chemical Biology Center (KBC) provides crystallographic expertise and access to equipment and consumables.
Screening for crystallization conditions in 96-well plates using 6 commercially available precipitant screens.
Crystal observation and follow up evaluation
Optimization of initial hits
Cryo-preservation of crystals (vitrification) and cryo-storage
Initial diffraction tests
In-house data collection with the X8PROTEUM diffractionsystem (Bruker)
X-ray safety training
Preparation for Synchrotron visits
Crystallization experiments are performed using a mosquito® nanoliter high throughput pipetting robot.
