High Throughput Protein Crystallization

Protein Crystallization

Protein Crystallization used to be thought of an "art". Technology in recent years has transpired "art" into a consistent scientific approach that resulted in high throughput screening of 3D structures that could shortcut drug discovery. Combining the 96 or 384 well dispense head to transfer the mother liquors, with an individual (up to 3), non contact, quantitative dispense heads, enables screening of both proteins and mother liquors with the sitting drop method in a high throughput manner A lower volume dispense system system with a graphical user interfaces results in "what used to take days or weeks" to grow crystals, to hours.
