The ComboPlate™ is a universal 24 well protein crystallization microplate for hanging and sitting drop vapor diffusion within a standardized footprint. Virgin, high clarity styrene combined with a distortion-free bottom provides excellent optical properties for microscopic inspection of crystal growth.
Flat, raised rings around each well minimize spills and cross-contamination. 18 mm cover slides or a clear sealing tape can be used to seal the plate. A slightly raised protection lid prevents scratches and shifting of the seal during stacking or transportation.
CrystalBridge™ inserts, necessary for sitting drop crystallization, fit neatly into the wells of ComboPlate™ (see well D6 of the above pictured ComboPlate™). Each CrystalBridge™ features a round bottom indentation to accommodate 45 µl of sample. A CrystalBridge™ can be easily transferred to another well during or after the crystallization event.
