Description: 

Our aim is to promote the use of the crystallization facility as a HT service, offering most of the commercial crystallization condition and customized solutions for the specific user’s requirements. The imagine analysis platform allows users to check their crystallization experiments on-line. This feature may be appealing for external users since they would be able to track their own experiments remotely.

There are many scientists that may be interested in incorporate crystallographic studies in their own project but do not have the infrastructure or the expertise to perform the experiment, the macromolecular crystallography platform at CIC-bioGUNE can offer to them the infrastructure as a service, including training for proper use of the equipment and advice in crystallization quality sample preparation. Within collaborative research we can offer, data collection, data processing, structure determination, validation and coordinates deposition in the PDB data bank

Services: 

At presence the macromolecular crystallography platform is offering:

-Advice in crystallization procedures and quality sample preparation.
-High-throughput screening with more than 1800 commercial conditions or customized crystallization solutions for specific user requirements.
-Crystallization plates stored and imaged at 21ºC in a Crystal farm.
-Crystallization plates stored at 4ºC, 18ºC, 25ºC.
-Personal training for data collection using the X-Ray home system.
-Support and training in quick cryosoaking technique for in-house derivatization.
-Individual and group training from data collection to structure determination.
