The tools in the Wizard Cubic LCP (lipidic cubic phase) Kit enable researchers to prepare LCP-type crystallizations by hand. Ideal for low-protein experiments: effective protein volume for a single crystallization experiment is about 80 nanoliters
The Wizard: Cubic LCP Kit™ kit contains all tools, formulations, and lipid to prepare micro-crystallization experiments according to the LCP micro method. To use this kit, the biological macromolecule sample, typically a membrane protein, is first incorporated into a lipidic material (LCP) and then this resulting LCP material can be dispensed in portions of approximately 200 nanoliters. The LCP forms spontaneously and acts as a matrix supporting the crystallization of soluble and membrane proteins.
