Primary Crystallization Kits

The Creative Biostructure’s primary crystallization kit is a rapid, practical, and efficient screening tool in protein crystallography. It is designed for screening of initial crystallization conditions for proteins, nucleic acids, peptides, and macromolecular complexes, in order to grow single crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction analysis. Based on known and published data for various proteins, the primary crystallization kit uses a sparse matrix method and a minimal amount of protein sample to explore a broad range of buffers, concentration, pH, and precipitants (Jancarik, J. and Kim, 1991).
