What type of crystallization plate should you choose?

Our liquid handling robot and imaging system offer the possibility to work with a wide range of crystallization protocols and plate types (SBS format). By default, we suggest to use the Swissci plate which offer high quality imaging with VIS light as well as UV light; concave bottom suitable for samples which contains detergents.
