On-demand droplet loading of ultrasonic acoustic levitator and its application for protein crystallography experiments | 2019

In this Letter, we explore a method of loading small droplets by using DoD dispensers to eject droplets and capturing those by the acoustic levitator. By analyzing the required condition for the trapping, we have developed a stable trapping strategy and applied the method to conduct a pilot protein crystallography experiment. In this way, we showed that the combination of the DoD dispensing method with the ALD is promising to realize an automated X-ray diffraction experiment without solid containers for crystals.

Automated harvesting and processing of protein crystals through laser photoablation

Currently, macromolecular crystallography projects often require the use of highly automated facilities for crystallization and X-ray data collection. However, crystal harvesting and processing largely depend on manual operations. Here, a series of new methods are presented based on the use of a low X-ray-background film as a crystallization support and a photoablation laser that enable the automation of major operations required for the preparation of crystals for X-ray diffraction experiments.
