CyBio ( combined its expertise in automation with Jena Bioscience’s ( portfolio for protein crystallization application to create a new automation solution—CyBi®-CrystalCreator.

The product was designed to assure fast and precise pipetting within a large volume range from 0.1– 25 µL without appreciable evaporation during the process. Consisting of a 96- and an 8-channel pipettor with a 10-place circular carriage, it offers sufficient space for any kind of crystallization plates and reservoirs, explains the company. It adds that this combination allows the automation of the whole protein crystallization process, ranging from screening over optimization even up to up to scale-up applications.
