JANSi UVEX Imaging Systems

SWISSCI and JAN Scientific have partnered to bring the UVEX crystal imaging systems to the market. With over 100 installations around the world, the UVEX is rapidly becoming the crystallographer’s go-to tool for the rapid detection and intuitive classification of protein crystals.

Key Features:

• Cooled, high-efficiency 6 MP monochrome UV camera.
• LED light sources, low maintenance, and long-lasting.
• Detect Protein crystals with ease. Detect micro-crystals hidden in the precipitate.
• Powerful imaging of protein crystals in LCP.  
• An industry-leading resolution of 0.2 micron/pixel with optional objectives• UV excitation/emission optimized for Trp fluorescence.
• Intuitive software with image management.
• Z slicing to produce a composite, extended depth image.
• Automatic drop centering with manual override (available on the UVEXp + UVEXps models).
• Autofocus (available on the UVEXp + UVEXps models).
• Standalone UVEX-p can be retrofitted into our plate hotels with a huge cost saving (available on the UVEXp + UVEXps models).
• Various options available including; Colour bi-refringence, UV absorbance, additional objectives.
