Protein Crystallization Software Update


ROCK MAKER 3.11 includes some improvements to make your research easier. Here is a quick look at some of the new developments.

Advanced Crystal Tracking and Synchrotron Trip Management
The new Crystal Tracking function in ROCK MAKER enables you to record the details of your synchrotron trips. You can mark crystals as “harvested”, define their storage location in specific pucks/dewars, and once the diffraction data has been collected you can annotate them accordingly. This powerful feature enables you to keep all of your crystal data in one centralized place, along with making documentation fun and future analyses much more convenient. For more information, read Crystal Management.

Ability to Perform Image Now from ROCK MAKER Web
ROCK MAKER Web has been given more power with the incorporation of the Image Now function, just like in ROCK MAKER desktop. Now, you can perform an imaging session from anywhere, anytime, on a single drop or multiple plates using multiple imaging settings of your choice by hitting the Image Using button.
