Goniometer bases (sometimes called "caps") are used to hold MicroMounts™, MicroLoops™, MicroMeshes™ and MicroGrippers™ in X-ray crystallography and related applications. The stainless steel rod of these products fits into the central hole of the base.
MiTeGen’s bases are compatible with standard cryo tools, with MiTeGen's Magnetic CryoVials and all other commercial cryovials, with all magnetic goniometer head mounts and sample automounting hardware, and with loop sample mounts from other manufacturers.
Unlike other available bases, our patented designs tightly capture the MicroRT™ capillaries to allow easy and seamless room-temperature and low-temperature data collection.
We offer several designs to ensure compatibility with both protein and small molecule crystallography hardware and with all sample automounters.
The eco-friendly and patent-pending designs grab and securely hold MicroMounts™, MicroLoops™, MicroMeshes™ and MicroGrippers™, and all other standard crystal mounts without epoxy, glue or grease.
Simply insert the mount's pin into the base, and then push down using our heavy-duty tweezers until the grip is secure.
Use MiTeGen's Base Holders for secure storage of goniometer bases (caps), pins and assemblies.
Convenient for organizing your MicroMounts™, MicroLoops™, MicroGrippers™ and MicroMeshes™ by size and design, for optimal crystal harvesting and data collection.
