Tips & TricksDiffraX™ plate for loop-free mounting
Tiny crystals or those in viscous media - such as LCP - can be particularly difficult to mount. Now there's no need to try! Single drops can be cut from our new thin film in situ sandwich plate and mounted directly on the beam with our specially adapted cryocap. Alternatively the whole plate can be mounted ina suitable frame for serial data collection.

Cryocrystallography on Countryfile
On Sunday 9th October Countryfile on BBC One featured an article on the fight against TB (starting from 25 minutes 15 seconds here). They interviewed Dr van den Elsen about his work towards vaccine development (starting at 28 minutes 30 seconds). We're sure that all you dedicated crystallographers and Countryfile fans recognised that the crystals were mounted in MD's very own litholoops!
