Crystallization lab resource
The Mosquito TTP LabTech robot is used for detecting protein crystallization conditions (screening) and for improving crystal quality prior (optimization) to X-ray data collection. It utilizes the sitting drop, hanging drop and microbatch-under-oil methods.
Lipidic Cubic Phase (LCP) Mosquito
The Mosquito LCP crystallization robot is suitable for the conventional protein crystallization methods, as well as for the Lipidic Cubic Phase (LCP) technique, which is particularly useful for crystallizing membrane proteins
The Rock Imager from Formulatrix is a storage and automated imaging system for protein crystallization plates.
X-ray data collection
Crystallographic data on protein crystals are collected either ‘in house’ in the X-ray Crystallography Laboratory at the Weizmann Institute or on Synchrotron source mostly at the
European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble, France as well as other European synchrotrons.
