X-taLight 100 - Microscope UV from Molecular Dimensions

X-taLightTM 100 offers a UV Fluorescence source for existing Microscope. A cost-effective, robust and easy-to-use Light Source, X-talightTM 100 utilises integrated UV and white light sources to allow: Clear differentiation of protein/other biomolecules from salt crystals and direct attachment to an existing microscope or imager.

Benefits:

  • Clear differentiation of protein/other biomolecules from salt crystals.
  • Direct attachment to existing lab microscopes = cost effective.
  • Visualize small crystals against a background of precipitate.
  • Minimal UV exposure time needed to avoid crystal damage.
  • Reduce time wasted on following up false crystallization hits.
  • Can be supplied with CCD camera for taking live images or stills in UV.
  • Applicable to both Micro Matrix Seeding (MMS) and Lipidic Cubic Phase (LCP) crystalliztion approaches - based on Trp fluorescence.
  • Can operate in cold rooms.
