LCP Glass Sandwich Set

The LCP Glass Sandwich Set is perfectly suited for in meso crystallization of membrane proteins.
It consists of a base glass plate with an adhered double sticky spacer containing 96 wells, protected by a brown cover sheet. The glass cover slip easily seals the entire base plate.


  • base plate: 127.8 x 85.5 x 1.0 mm
  • cover slip: 112.0 x 77.0 x 0.2 mm


  • SBS standard
  • superhydrophobic glass surfaces
  • fits laboratory robotics

Recommended Volumes per Well

  • 50 nl of lipidic cubic phase
  • 1 µl of crystallization reagent

The LCP Glass Sandwich Set was developed at the Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA and is manufactured by Paul Marienfeld GmbH, Germany.
