MicroLoops LD double thickness
Crystal collection is easier with the long, narrow necks of MicroLoops LD. Designed to minimize droplet disturbance when inserted into small liquid droplets, you can harvest faster and easier. Each box contains twenty (20) MicroLoops LD. MiTeGen offers ready-to-use assemblies. Supports can be pre-inserted into reusable bases or epoxy applied on standard bases.
- Thick, durable polymer on both body and opening
- No through-holes
- Patented curve mount design
- Precise dimensions for easy alignment
- Wide range of sizes
- Compatible with standard X-ray hardware
- micro loop LD detail
- Ultra-low vibration
- Ease of harvest
- Visible aperture size
Ideal for sub microliter droplets and microfluidic crystallization cards/chips. Pierces protein skins and recovers crystals without removing the skin. The thick polymer in the neck region makes these loops very stiff in liquid droplets and cold gas streams. The thin polymer in the loop region ensures the lowest possible background scattering in X-ray diffraction applications. Double-thick MicroLoops LD has aperture sizes of 20, 35, 50, 75, 100, 150, 200, and 300 µm.
They are available in boxes of a single size of 20 pins and 2 different assortments:
A1: 20 pins, 5 of each 20, 35, 50, and 75 μm.
A2: 20 pins, 5 each 100, 150, 200 and 300 μm.
MicroLoops LD ™ is built on 18mm / SPINE rods (pins), which are now standard on almost all synchrotron beamlines in the world. Other pin lengths are also available: (11mm, 19mm, and 25mm). We highly recommend the use of heavy-duty serrated nose pliers for handling MicroLoops LD. MicroLoops LD is compatible with all standard X-ray hardware and can be inserted into 0.7mm mechanical pencils or micromanipulators for easy handling.
