ProCrys HT System for Protein Crystallisation

ProCrys 2002 is a turnkey and complete solution for protein crystallisation, the preparation of screening solutions from stock solutions, transfer of screening solutions to mother plates (usually deepwell plates), filling of crystallisation plates with screening solution and proteins, sealing of mother and crystallisation plates with adhesive sealer to prevent evaporation

  • Fast & optimised pipetting of screening solutions of with intelligent sorting software, which can use either volume or concentration
  • High precision liquid handling of screening solutions of varying viscosities as well as proteins
  • Rapid 'on the fly' dispensing of of diluted solutions minimises contamination
  • Reliable level detection in containers sealed with septa to minimise contamination of liquid handling probes
  • Adhesive sealing to minimise the risk of evaporation
  • Thorough ultrasonic washing of liquid handling probes at different temperatures
  • Superior data communication for fast pipetting
  • Flexible System which can handle all commonly used lab ware (e.g. tubes & plates)
  • Full barcode control

ProCrys Meso Automation Platform for Membrane Proteins

ProCrys Meso is the new liquid handling platform for the preparation of 96 in-meso (or cubic phase) proteins.

  • 1 meter liquid handling platform with 2 pipetting arms
  • Accurate and precise dispensing of the protein and the screening solution
  • Preparation of own screening solutions on the workbench
  • An integrated module ensures the ideal humidity conditions for the process
  • Precise and reproducible dispensing of the mesophase
  • Positioning of the protein is controlled by a high precision laser
  • The Sensor controlled shape and travel length of the needle of the protein dispenser
  • Software automatically adjusts the coordinates of dispense hight and position in the well to the reading of the laser and needle sensors
  • WinProCrys software allows maximum flexibility of method development
  • Work lists can be imported from Excel® or the customer's LIMS system
