MRC Microbatch Under Oil Plate

MRC Microbatch Under Oil Plate Facts

  • ANSI/SLAS 1-2004 Standard
  • 96 wells
  • 20 micro-liter volume

Key Features

  • Optically perfect wells
  • Micro-numbering
  • Optimized for micro-batch crystallization


The SWISSCI MRC Under Oil 96 Well Crystallisation plate uses oil as a seal and active diffusion mechanism for the purpose of running macromolecular crystallization under oil.
The plate offers unique properties that make it ideal for both nanolitre crystallisation screening and microlitre optimisation alike. The plate was developed at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology (Cambridge, UK) in collaboration with Dr. Jan Löwe and colleagues. It is a result of many years of experience in successful robotic high-throughput crystallization.

Product Specifications

Easy Crystal Retrieval
Raised wide wells make crystal mounting especially easy

Easy Viewing
The micro-numbering is visible by microscope.
The wells are a wide conical shape and have a lens effect for perfect illumination.
UV transmissible polymer

Recommended Volumes
Typical volumes validated for these plates are 20 micro-liters of oil with a shot through sample delivery of 100 to 200 nano-liters.
The 20 micro-liter volume of the individual wells gives the user a wide range of macromolecular crystallization possibilities.

ANSI/SLAS 1-2004 Standard
The plates are designed to the 96 – well ANSI/SLAS 1-2004 standards for all common holders and external numbering (A – H, 1 – 12) with corner location that make the plate easy to use in a robotic sampler.
The plate can also be centrifuged for better results.
The unique MRC Under Oil 96 well Crystallisation plate offers a new approach to micro-batch crystallography.
