Protein Crystallization

Idea: An introduction to protein crystallization using a vapor diffusion technique

Biophysics Lab Course, Institute of Biophysics, Ulm University


The protein lysozyme is crystallized with a vapour diffusion technique, here the hanging drop method.

Buffers with different pH and precipitant concentrations are used on a 24 well plate to find optimal crystallization conditions.

The success for the different solvent conditions is characterized by
size and number of grown crystals in the respective wells.
