CryoSol™ - Solubilize hydrophobic ligands for co-crystallization
and cryoprotection

Developed in the Laboratory of Dr. Enrico Stura at CEA Saclay, France CryoSol™ is an extended set of multicomponent solutions intended for crystal cryoprotection and soaking of hydrophobic ligands into crystals.

a) Crystals of TTR grown in complex with curcumin
b) Crystal structure of TTR-curcumin complex following further soaking in a cryosol solution with curcumin (PDB: 4PMF).

  • Simultaneously soak in your molecule and cryoprotect your crystal
  • Co-crystallize with hydrophobic compounds (ligands, inhibitors, cofactors, coenzymes etc.)
  • Designed to improve diffraction resolution and reduce mosaicity
