What kind of automation can be done with the EasyXtal 15-well Tool?
Two of the three handling steps for the EasyXtal 15-well Tool can be automated:
- Dispensing of crystallization solution to the reservoir (volume 500 µl, no need for precision) ->YES
- Pipetting protein and crystallization onto the screwcap and closing it on the well -> NO (it involves turning around and fastening the screwcaps)
- Readout of results in visualization instruments (=automated microscope stations) -> YES
