Sample holder for crystal growth, any necessary crystal soaking and X-ray data collection without the need of crystal manipulation or mounting

The XtalTool is a patent-pending 22 mm sample holder consisting of a plastic support with an outer transparent COC film and an inner X-ray transparent yellow Kapton film with 5 μm pores. The design allows the setup of multiple crystallization drops and does not compromise the monitoring of crystals under a microscope. Mounted on the supplied goniometer base it meets the 18 mm SPINE standard and is compatible with most synchrotron and in-house beamlines.
The XtalTool enables crystal growth, manipulation and X-ray data collection at room and cryogenic temperature, all in one.

24 XtalTool Sample Holder
1 Customized Goniometer Base (Type B5)

The XtalTool was developed by HZB MX-group at BESSY II (AG Weiss).
