    MicroLoop LD in use

    Simplify crystal harvesting, and obtain the best possible data from your crystals, using the most advanced loops available.

    Composed of X-ray transparent material, crystals can be mounted directly on the loops, reducing excess fluid, preventing damage, and making getting the crystals out of the drop easier.

    M2-A1 Assortment of MicroMounts

    MiTeGen's Small Crystal Harvesting Kit™ has everything you need to mount and collect X-ray data from your smallest crystals.

    The common difficulties of crystal harvesting are exacerbated by tiny samples. Due to their small size, a tiny crystal can be especially difficult to mount and transport, and is susceptible to dehydration.

    This kit has been designed to deal specifically with issues attributable to small crystals. With the Small Crystal Harvesting Kit™ you will:

    • Save time trying to corral small samples onto your mount
    • Maintain the integrity of fragile samples from harvest to data collection
    • Minimize dehydration
    • Decrease costs and increase throughput
    • Easily clean and store your mounts
  • Dual Thickness MicroMountsTM

    View Product

    MicroMounts™ are highly X-ray transparent precision tools for retrieving and mounting protein crystals, virus crystals, and small molecule/inorganic crystals. They can be also used for handling small fragile samples of all sorts, including biological, archaeological and mineralogical samples. Favored by protein crystallographers for their ease of harvest and reduction of surrounding fluid.

    Each box contains twenty (20) MicroMounts™

    MiTeGen offers ready-to-use assemblies. Mounts can either be pre-inserted into reusable bases or epoxied into standard bases.

  • MicroLoops ETM

    View Product

    MicroLoops E™ have elongated apertures specially designed for mounting crystals with needle or rod morphologies. The small fingers projecting into the aperture gently support your sample. Choosing between Vertical, Horizontal and Inclined apertures allows you to control the crystal orientation relative to the X-ray beam. Use inclined apertures to improve crystal orientation for the most efficient data collection.

    microtools kit 2

    These tools have tips made from soft, flexible microfabricated polymer films. Tip curvature gives them rigidity, but they can still easily be flexed to conform to a well or slide surface. These tools are far less likely to damage fragile samples than metal microtools, and are optically and X-ray transparent. Use for protein crystals, single cells and other small samples.
