TTP LabTech has announced its latest webinar entitled “Optimizing automated low volume, high value protein crystallization screening”, to be held on Thursday 29th September 2011 at 3pm GMT (4pm European Time, 10am eastern standard time).
Distinguished speakers from both academia and industry will discuss the benefits of TTP LabTech’s mosquito® Crystal and mosquito LCP specialized nanolitre pipetting platforms for their crystallization studies/trials.
Professor Savvas Savvides from Ghent University will discuss his experiences in successfully obtaining crystals from prohibitively low amounts of recombinant proteins and protein complexes, using mosquito Crystal.
In addition he highlights how the ability to go from protein purification to extensive crystallization trials on the same day offers clear experimental advantages.
Drs Andrew Doré and Kaspar Hollenstein from Heptares Therapeutics Ltd, will present methods for establishing Lipidic Cubic Phase (LCP) Crystallization experiments for G Protein Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) with mosquito LCP, demonstrating the practical set-up of an LCP experiment with an in-house target protein.
In addition, Joby Jenkins, mosquito product manager at TTP LabTech, will offer tips to help optimize seeding and additive screening protocols for the mosquito systems.
