Rigaku Automation’s Minstrel HT UV high-throughput ultraviolet and visible crystal imaging and protein crystal monitoring system is for use in protein crystallization experiments. The robotic device can find crystals in complex drops and can distinguish protein ones from nonprotein ones. Proprietary Clean Light Technology provides UV illumination for positive crystal identification without photodamage and allows UV light to be focused onto the well of interest and then strobed to minimize UV exposure time so that the crystal imaging has no effect on diffraction quality. The technology brings no additional heat to the well.
