Dual Thickness MicroLoops

An optimized crystal harvesting cryo-loop that is great for high-throughput applications requiring extra durability.

Each box contains twenty (20) MicroLoops™ – Available in 10 different sizes from 50 to 1000 μm.

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

Product Information

Watch Video – Impact of Crystal Mounting Method

Easily harvest crystals using the MiTeGen “on-the-loop” harvesting method. The loop + crystal can go directly into the X-ray beam without impacting data quality.

Great for room temperature and cryogenic crystallography.

  • Patented curve mount design
  • Precise dimensions for ease of alignment
  • Wide range of sizes
  • Compatible with standard X-ray hardware
  • Robust
  • Rigid
  • Ultra low vibration
  • Ease of harvest
  • Visible aperture size
M5 sizes
Dual-Thickness MicroLoops™ have aperture sizes of 50, 100, 150, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 800, and 1000 μm.

These are available in single size boxes of 20 pins and 3 different assortments:

  • A4: 20 pins, 5 each of 50, 100, 150, and 200 μm.
  • A5: 20 pins, 5 each of 300, 400, 500, and 600 μm.
  • A6: 20 pins, 10 each of 800, and 1000 μm.

MicroLoops™ 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™.

MicroLoops™ are compatible with all standard X-ray hardware and can be inserted in 0.7 mm mechanical pencils or micromanipulators for easy handling.
