Protein crystallization is the process of formation of a protein crystal. While some protein crystals have been observed in nature, protein crystallization is predominantly used for scientific or industrial purposes, most notably for study by X-ray crystallography. Like many other types of molecules, proteins can be prompted to form crystals when the solution in which they are dissolved becomes supersaturated. Under these conditions, individual protein molecules can pack in a repeating array, held together by non-covalent interactions. These crystals can then be used in structural biology to study the molecular structure of the protein, or for various industrial or biotechnological purposes.
To meet the demanding requirements of protein crystallography, structural biology, Biophysics and genomics laboratories, Clinocare provides a complete solution starting from making your own screens till observation of crystals.
