Rigaku Reagents (formerly Emerald Bio) offers two unique CLOVER crystallization plates. The unique CLOVER chambers reduce shelf-space requirements, reagent consumption, and plasticware costs by 75%. The CLOVER plates are made of a special clarified polypropylene which is practically as clear as polystyrene, and far more chemically resistant. The CLOVER plates were designed for the parallelized high-throughput requirements of structural genomics.
The CombiClover crystallization plates utilize a patented sitting-drop well design. A central reservoir is connected to four satellite drop chambers via dedicated vapor diffusion channels to create a novel combinatorial "crystallization clover". Each plate has 24 of the described clovers, providing 96 ﬂat-bottom sitting drop chambers. The unique design allows four different crystallization experiments to occur within each clover providing maximum efficacy and conservation of crystallization solutions.
The CompactClover crystallization plate differs from the CombiClover plate because it utilizes four partitioned reservoir chambers in the place of one central reservoir. These four partitioned chambers are each connected to a satellite drop chamber via dedicated vapor diffusion channels to create a variation of the novel combinatorial "crystallization clover" provided in the CombiClover plates. Each plate has 24 of the partitioned reservoirs and 96 flat-bottom sitting drop chambers. This design allows four different experiments to be conducted in each clover, with each portion containing a different crystallant, and allowing them to be investigated simultaneously.
