Instrument Developments, Crystallization Position, Cryo-EM Puck Sale, & More
We've Been Busy!
What makes for a busy and exciting summer? For MiTeGen, it was NANUQ™ installations, Watershed™ shipments, and lots and lots of loops being built! Oh yeah, and having astronauts on the ISS set up crystallization experiments in our In Situ-1™ plates !
What started it all? Improving Loops!
14 years ago, MiTeGen was founded on a desire to improve the tools and methods researchers use in crystallography.

We started by engineering new loop designs to improve harvesting, cryocooling and diffraction. Now we've developed and installed large lab instruments that take optimizing sample preparation and data quality to a whole new level.

This summer, we were proud to see our instrumentation being installed at research facilities around the world and having immediate impacts. We are excited and you should be too, because we are just getting started.
Our Goal: Improve Tools to Maximize Data Quality
A demand from researchers and an innovative idea sparked the launch of MiTeGen back in 2004.

Optimized Crystal Mounts and Loops were the first tool we developed.

We now have researchers worldwide relying on them as their standard to obtain the best possible data from their crystals with ease.
Instrument Installs:
Eliminate poor cooling rates and the steps that can cause crystal damage and limit diffraction quality.

When MiTeGen was founded, we had vision for the steps in preparing crystal that needed to be optimized to obtain the best diffraction from crystals.

The process of manual plunging samples into liquid nitrogen was high on the list. This development took time and attention to detail, but that work paid off.

NANUQ™ now provides fully controlled cryocooling and eliminates the variables that can ruin diffraction.

Avoid losing crystals and resolution to dried out drops.

If you have ever tried harvesting protein crystals, you know how challenging it can be to mount crystals before the drop starts to dry out. Controlling drop and sample dehydration was a clear next step to optimize diffraction.

We launched Watershed™ in late July 2018 and began receiving orders and shipping units immediately. Using Watershed™ allows users to get the most from the crystals they worked so hard to grow.
