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. Exposed drops quickly develop skins, precipitate out, or have the crystals deteriorate right before your eyes. You can now easily avoid these undesired outcomes, that can frustrate researchers and reduce the quality of diffraction data. Don't let hard work setting up all of those plates to get crystals go to waste.
Take control of every aspect of crystal harvesting. Avoid dehydration, increase drop working time, prevent degradation, and harvest more crystals from each drop by using the Watershed™ System. The system utilizes a controlled stream of humidified air that helps protect samples from unwanted evaporation and allows users full control of their harvesting parameters.
