Sitting drop protein crystallization rod

FSU-IMB Design

Friday, Feb 6, 2015

We have designed a simple sitting drop (protein) crystallization rod. We have found this to be more useful that those available commercially. Since these rods are reusable we have made a handful and reuse them after one set of experiments.

The material itself is made of poly (methyl methacrylate) also known by its commercial name Plexiglas. We have made several trials before deciding on this particular version. The dimensions are in mm and will fit inside a 24-well (VDX) plates (greased or non-greased) or Linbro plates and will mimic the CrysChem plate.
