Fully automated UV imaging and protein monitoring system uses UVF microscopy
February 2009
SHARING OPTIONS:

Rigaku has introduced Desktop Minstrel UV, the world's first fully automated ultraviolet (UV) imaging and protein crystal monitoring system that uses Ultraviolet Fluorescence (UVF) microscopy. Engineered and optimized for use in protein crystallization experiments, this new instrument's UVF technology can easily distinguish protein crystals from non-protein crystals such as salt. Desktop Minstrel UV employs Clean Lite Technology, providing illumination with the wavelength matching the absorption of the fluorescing amino acids such as tryptophan. The resulting fluorescing light is then digitally recorded by a specialized CCD camera attached to an ultraviolet (UV) microscope.
