CRYSTALLISATION

Paris Sud PF ST1 Crystallization

            The Crystallization platform at South Paris (labelled IBiSA) allows screening, analysis and automated optimization of the macromolecules crystallization conditions by vapour diffusion methods at 20°C (soon also at 4°C). Until construction and installation of the new Institute for Integrative Biology of the Cell (I2BC) in a near future, this platform is located in two sites: LEBS (CNRS, Gif-sur-Yvette) and IBBMC (University of South Paris, Orsay).

In particular, it offers self-service access to crystallisation and visualization robots and provides users with ready to use commercial kits of crystallisation and home-made standard stocks solutions for crystal optimization, and can realize crystallography projects in collaboration.

Plates can be stored in 4°C and 20°C and followed with stereo-microscopes (Nikon. Leica)

The Crystallization platform disposes of following devices:
