Dual Thickness MicroLoops LD
Crystal harvesting is easier with the long narrow necks of MicroLoops LD™. Designed to minimize drop disturbance when inserted into small liquid drops, you can harvest faster and easier.
Each box contains twenty (20) MicroLoops LD™.
Great for sub-microliter drops and microfluidic crystallization cards/chips.
Puncture protein skins and retrieve crystals without removing the skin.
Thick polymer in the neck region makes these loops very rigid in liquid drops and cold gas streams. Thin polymer in the loop region ensures the lowest possible background scatter in X-ray diffraction applications.
Dual-Thickness MicroLoops LD™ have aperture sizes of 20, 35, 50, 75, 100, 150, 200, and 300 μm.
These are available in single size boxes of 20 pins and 2 different assortments:
- A1: 20 pins, 5 each of 20, 35, 50, and 75 μm.
- A2: 20 pins, 5 each of 100, 150, 200, and 300 μm.
MicroLoops LD™ are built on 18 mm / SPINE length rods (pins), which are now standard at nearly all synchrotron beam lines in the world. Other pin lengths are also available: (11mm, 19mm, and 25mm)
We strongly recommend using heavy-duty, serrated-tip tweezers to handle MicroLoops LD™.
MicroLoops LD™ are compatible with all standard X-ray hardware and can be inserted in 0.7 mm mechanical pencils or micromanipulators for easy handling.
