Participating Vendors:

 

Anatrace/Molecular Dimensions.......................................... 111, 113

 

For 30 years, Anatrace has strived to develop and supply the industry's finest products for protein science.  Building on our portfolio of detergents and lipids, the addition of Microlytic crystallization tools and screens and our line of protein purification products, allow us to fully support the entire structural biology pipeline.

 

 



 Formulatrix......................................................................... 207, 209

 

Second Order Non-linear Imaging of Chiral Crystals (SONICC) is an exciting new protein detection tool that uses pulsed lasers to exploit the intrinsic frequency-doubling property found in protein crystals to produce high-contrast images.  Our upgraded UV imaging systems can distinguish between protein and salt crystals with short exposure times and now with improved image quality.  Rock Maker 2.0 is a powerful, yet easy to use software solution that automates the entire protein crystallization process. Formulator is a next-generation liquid handler that uses patent-pending microfluidic technology to dispense reagents up to ten times faster than traditional liquid handlers.
