The facility has a variety of commercial crystallisation screening kits and incubators at 10 °C (Raypa FKS 1800) and 18 °C in a dedicated, temperature controlled room. Crystallization plates are set with an Oryx4 crystallization robot which provides the opportunity of screening a great range of crystallization conditions saving time and sample quantity (https://www.douglas.co.uk/oryx4.htm). Crystallisation conditions can be screened in 96-well plates (SWISSCI preferably, sitting drops only) in hundreds of nonoliter volumes. Screening for sitting drop experiments is carried out using plates that are prefilled with reservoir solutions by the users (reservoirs can be filled manually with a 8-channel pipette). Crystallisation trials are monitored with a Leica 12.5M stereoscope.
