The Anderson−Evans polyoxotungstate [TeW6O24]6− (TEW) is a universal and flexible additive for protein crystallization. It exhibits a planar structure with six tungsten atoms, being able to improve crystal quality and resolution while providing a valuable anomalous signal for phasing. TEW was shown to:
The XP Screen consists of the 96 most prominent crystallization conditions plus TEW to provide an environment to increase the chances of crystallization and improve crystal diffraction quality.
