Sample cooling & dehydration devices
“Controlled dehydration of protein crystals has often been reported as a key factor to improve the diffraction quality of the crystals. Increases in resolution limit, decreases in the mosaicity and space-group transitions are well documented (Kaushal et al. 2008, Bowler et al. 2006, Kuo et al. 2003, Saraswathi et al. 2002) and different approaches have been developed to carry out the dehydration process (Heras & Martin, 2005, Kiefersauer et al. 2000,).” Text and references extracted from: embl.fr
The Hc-Lab Humidity Controller delivers a continuous flux of humid air with controlled relative humidity for the given sample temperature.
The HC-Lab is the successor of the HC1 Humidity Controller. Both devices are co-developed by the EMBL and Arinax.
