New Technologies - Sample Tracking / Crystallography Sample Supports - Events/Jobs/News
We have been busy developing new technologies to make your work in the lab more productive. This includes a tracking system for both cryo-EM and crystallography as well as crystallography sample supports.
Cryogenic RFID Sample Tracking System
We have launched a Cryogenic RFID sample tracking system compatible with cryo-EM and crystallography pucks and cryo-EM grid boxes.

We are seeking cryo-EM facility managers and research labs interested in discussion and potential collaboration. The focus will be on integration and testing of this system with their current sample management workflows.

The system was developed in collaboration with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL Grenoble) and provides sample identification and tracking at cryogenic temperatures for both crystallography and cryo-EM samples.
Crystallography Sample Supports
The 2nd new technology we have developed is a crystallography sample support system. It is designed to be the next-generation crystal mounting system that will change how crystals can be prepared for X-ray diffraction data collection.

It has applications for a wide range of crystallography techniques including conventional, serial, In Situ and room temperature crystallography.

We are seeking researchers interested in discussion and potential collaboration.
