Description
The Crystal Screen and Crystal Screen 2 reagent kits are designed to provide a highly effective and rapid screening method for the crystallization of macromolecules. The screens are simple and practical for finding initial crystallization conditions. The initial crystallization conditions for more than 1,000 proteins, peptides, oligonucleotides, and small molecules have been determined using Crystal Screen.
A highly effective approach to overcome the exhaustive search for suitable crystallization conditions is the use of a sparse matrix method of trial conditions that is biased and selected from known crystallization conditions for macromolecules. The formulation utilized in Crystal Screen and Crystal Screen 2 evaluates 96 unique mixtures of pH, salts, polymers and organics, and their ability to promote crystal growth.
Crystal Screen contains 50 unique reagents, 10 ml each and is based on the sparse matrix formulation first described by Jancarik and Kim in 1991.
Crystal Screen 2, an extension of Crystal Screen, contains 48 unique reagents, 10 ml each and is based on the formulation first described by Cudney et al in 1994.
Crystal Screen HT contains 1 ml each of reagents 1-48 from Crystal Screen and all 48 reagents from Crystal Screen 2 in a single Deep Well block format.
Ready-to-use reagents are sterile filtered and formulated with ultra-pure Type 1 water, using the highest purity salts, polymers, organics and buffers. Individual reagents are available through the Hampton Research Custom Shop.

CryoTong™ – Long
ApplicationsCrystal transfer under cryo temperature
FeaturesArtery clamp style closure30 seconds of cryo temperature180 mm length
Description
The CryoTong is a tool used to manually transfer a crystal mounted on a CrystalCap™ from liquid nitrogen to a magnetic base in a goniometer head positioned in a cryogenic stream, and then back to liquid nitrogen. The one-piece, compact CryoTong is available in two lengths. The long CryoTong is approximately 180 mm in overall length. The artery clamp style maintains the CryoTong in the closed position until the clamp is squeezed, which opens the opposing heads. The heads are non-magnetic stainless steel. The handle is magnetic stainless steel. The inside of the head is machined to closely surround the CrystalCap with loop and crystal in place. A small retaining lip is machined into the lower portion of the head to prevent the CrystalCap from slipping out of the CryoTong when the tool is in the closed position. The CryoTong can maintain the temperature of the crystal at -160°C for up to 30 seconds during room temperature crystal transfers. Choose the proper CryoTong size based upon the pin length required by the configuration of the x-ray data collection hardware used. The 18 mm CryoTong (HR5-112) is to be used with the CrystalCap HT and any other CrystalCap configured for 18 mm.HR5-114 Long CryoTong 18 mm, 180° features the head in alignment with the handle of the CryoTong.

CrystalWand™ Magnetic
ApplicationsCrystalCap Magnetic & CrystalCap Copper Magnetic handling toolDescription
The CrystalWand Magnetic is designed to be used exclusively with the CrystalCap Magnetic, CrystalCap Copper Magnetic, and CrystalCap HT systems during transfer of the caps from the vial to the goniometer head and from the goniometer to the vial. The 6 1/2” (165 mm) long chrome plated steel wand features a plastic housing enclosing a spring tensioned plunger that when depressed, moves a non-magnetic steel platform away from the magnet housed in the end of the wand. This causes the steel CrystalCap to detach from the wand and be placed readily into the vial or the CryoTong™. When the platform is retracted, the wand securely holds the steel CrystalCap Magnetic. The CrystalWand Magnetic 45° (McMiken Tool) offers the same functionality but is bent at a 45° angle at approximately 2.5 cm from the magnet end.HR4-729 CrystalWand Magnetic, StraightHR4-315 CrystalWand Magnetic, 45° (McMiken Tool)

Hampton PEG/Ion • PEG/Ion 2 • PEG/Ion HT

Hampton PEG/Ion • PEG/Ion 2 • PEG/Ion HT

Applications
  Primary or secondary, polymer, salt and pH matrix crystallization screen for biological macromolecules
Features

Developed at Hampton Research
PEG/Ion is a sparse matrix profile of anions and cations in the presence of monodisperse Polyethylene glycol 3,350 over pH 4.5 – 9.2
PEG/Ion 2 screens a complete profile of titrated organic acids at varying pH levels (3.7 – 8.8) in the presence of monodisperse PEG 3,350
PEG/Ion HT combines PEG/Ion and PEG/Ion 2 in a single 96 Deep Well block
 Description

PEG/Ion, developed by Hampton Research, is a crystallization screen designed to evaluate monodisperse, high purity Polyethylene glycol 3,350 and 48 unique salts representing a very complete range of anions and cations frequently used in the crystallization of biological macromolecules. The primary screening variables are PEG, ion type, ionic strength, and pH. More than 60% of the published crystallizations utilized PEG as a primary crystallization reagent and in approximately 50% of those reports, the PEG was combined with an ion as a secondary crystallization reagent. PEG/Ion reagents are formulated without a buffer and are not pH titrated.
PEG/Ion 2 is an extension to the fundamental crystallization strategy in PEG/Ion. PEG/Ion 2 reagents cover the monodisperse, high purity Polyethylene glycol 3,350 and an array of neutralized and pH adjusted organic acids, multivalent ions, a novel Citrate BIS-TRIS propane buffer system and pH (4 – 8.8). The formulation of PEG/Ion 2 was developed at Hampton Research. Each of the 48 reagents in PEG/Ion 2 contains PEG 3,350 as the polymer (precipitant). The concentration of PEG is varied from 12% w/v to 20% w/v depending upon the type and concentration of buffer/salt paired with the polymer. Thirteen of the forty-eight PEG/Ion 2 reagents contain a separate buffer component. The remaining PEG/Ion 2 reagents are buffered by the titrated organic acid salt. Six of these thirteen conditions feature a novel Citric acid BIS-TRIS propane (CBTP) buffer. The CBTP buffer uses Citric acid and BIS-TRIS propane as the acid base pair to create a two component buffer system effective across pH 2.5 to 9.5. The ratio of Citric acid to BIS-TRIS propane determines the solution pH. Thirty-five of the forty-eight PEG/Ion 2 reagents contain a neutralized or pH adjusted organic acid in the presence of the polymer. Neutralized organic acids are highly effective crystallization salts.1 Four PEG/Ion 2 reagents feature polyvalent cations. Two of these reagents contain cation mixes, saving sample by screening six different cations with only two reagents. Tryptone, a casein digest combinatorial library of peptides, is included in PEG/Ion 2. PEG/Ion 2 reagents 1-30, 42, 45-47 are formulated without a buffer and are not pH titrated.
PEG/Ion contains 48 unique reagents, 10 ml each.
PEG/Ion 2 contains 48 unique reagents, 10 ml each.
