Protein/low molecular crystal mount tool Crystal Catcher™

We offer new idea product for X-ray crystallography, protein crystal mounting tool,
easy handling, and effectively picks out protein crystal.

This tool picks up protein crystal by adhesive way, because it can illuminate X-ray to only crystal, it will help getting better quality in X-ray diffraction data (XRD).

We have glass tip "CT-300", "CT-400" and corresponding main body "CC-900 (multi)" as product line-up for versatility.
