New Product - Cryo-EM Bulk Storage Grid Box
 The Bulk Storage Grid Box features a pocket with 12 slots that are optimal for cradling 12 autogrids – an entire cassette of autogrids in one grid box. These boxes are made with a highly opaque plastic, enabling optimal visualization of grids in the pocket under LN2.
2022 ACA Annual Meeting Preview
Are you attending the ACA annual meeting in Portland July 29th to August 2nd? Then stop by and see us at our MiTeGen booth. We will have an array of our technologies available so you can have a hands-on review of them. This includes:

Morpheus Fusion Screen
We are now offering the Morpheus® Fusion protein crystallization screen. It is a 96-condition incomplete factorial protein crystallization screen. Its range of low-molecular weight ligands unlocks novel chemical spaces previously inaccessible using conventional screens.

In a recent paper recently published in the Journal of Applied Crystallography, "The formulation and preparation of the FUSION screen was presented. The efficiency of this new screen has been demonstrated by producing hits for test samples in multiple conditions and even crystal forms that had not been reported previously for the corresponding well known proteins."
Upcoming Events
At MiTeGen, we sponsor numerous events, conferences, workshops and symposiums throughout the year. These events include fields such as structural biology, crystallography, cryo-EM, beamline research and more. We believe in supporting researchers and our industry. Listed below are two upcoming events you might find interesting.
The 36th Annual Symposium of The Protein Society is July 7-10th. It is your chance to connect and share your ideas with hundreds of protein science professionals from around the globe. We are sponsoring this event & are a member of the Protein Society.
The Pacific Northwest Summer Crystallographic Institute Workshop is July 13th to 16th. The workshop aims to instruct students and their faculty research mentors in the methods and rewards of small molecule X-ray crystallography as a tool for routine characterization.
