SWISSCI XPOL LCP for Excellent Crystal Viewing
SWISSCI XPOL LCP
The new SWISSCI XPol LCP allows excellent crystal viewing for even the smallest of crystals, with uniform zero background when using cross polarised light.
The SWISSCI XPol LCP was developed closely with the Protein Crystallisation Center of the University of Zurich. The center has many years of expertise in crystallizing membrane proteins. The XPol LCP kit has been specially formulated to improve performance versus standard LCP systems.
The Hydrophobic (silanized) Glass Base comes in ANSI/SLAS 1-2004-Standard (SBS) format allowing for easy automation and high throughput screening. The Double-Sided Pressure Adhesive, available in 60μm and 120μm, comes readily stuck to the Glass Base with space for barcode application. The Double-Sided Pressure Adhesive has 96 holes which are 7mm in diameter and have a 2.3μ volume in the 60μm version and 4.6μl volume for 120μm. The large diameter almost eliminates the occurrence of precipitation solution being pulled to the side, which can often happen with smaller diameter holes.
The SWISSCI XPol LCP comes as standard with 175μm Cover Glass. For the addition of UV/Flu, UV Cover Films are also available upon request at 40μm, 100μm or 200μm thickness.
