CrysScreen Version 2.0

Tecan has upgraded its CrysScreen software package with several improvements to guide crystallographers through the complexities of automated protein crystallography trials.

The new CrysScreen Version 2.0 runs under Tecan’s Freedom EVOware Standard software, providing simple and efficient process control of automated hanging drop, sitting drop and microbatch protein crystallography experiments using the Freedom EVO liquid handling workstations.

The package provides easy management of protein crystallography trials, including screening definitions, custom buffer creation, design of experimental conditions, execution of experiments, data management, analysis of results and the definition of follow-up experiments. An intuitive user interface completes the package for the easy management of protein crystallography.
