G-Rob 2D consists in a robot-based system that positions the crystallization plates directly in the beam for screening. This crystallization screening technique is the best way to get relevant information on your crystals, such as space group, cell parameters, mosaicity in a very short time. There is no need for crystal fishing and cryo-protection. Standard or optimized crystallization plates can be used, as well as micro-chips. (see Jacquamet et al., Structure 12 (July 2004), 1219-1225).
The G-Rob 2D system can be provided with a large number of accessories, such as:
dot matrix/bar code reader
room temperature hotel for crystallization plates
automated controlled-temperature incubator for crystallization plates
see the catalogue for details.
The “2D” capability is also available as an upgrade for already installed G-Rob 1D systems.
G-Rob can also be provided by IRELEC as a complete system that includes a state-of-the-art X-ray source and a large detector
