High optical resolution is achieved by increasing the numerical aperture of the objective. The trade-off, however, is that depth of field (depth of the image in focus at one time) is reduced. ROCK IMAGER combines multiple slices into one Extended Focus Image (EFI) to allow the best of both worlds.
Capture Images the Way You Want
Multiple images of each drop can be captured with user-adjustable settings including exposure, polarization, and condenser aperture.
See Something Interesting? Zoom in for a Better Look
Specify regions of interest within a drop to zoom into. ROCK IMAGER will automatically capture those areas in high resolution.

Versatile Options for Any Lab
Models to Fit Your Lab's Throughput and Budget
With 6 different models all with flexible options, there is a ROCK IMAGER to fit your lab's needs. Plate capacities range from a single-plate desktop model up to 970 SBS plates or 1500 LCP plates with hotel storage.
No Need to Change Your Microplate
All ROCK IMAGERS are compatible with SBS, LCP, and microbatch plates. Options for Linbro and Qiagen EasyXtal plate compatibility are available.

The two ROCK IMAGERs in our Biochemical Institute at UZH have proven to be very valuable tools to advance our research in structural biology. The visible light and cross-polarization images in color and the highly focused UV fluorescence images, in combination with the sophisticated ROCK MAKER/ROCK MAKER Web software, are crucial as they allow researchers to efficiently sift through literally thousands of experiments. Vital to the success of these tools is the excellent response of the technical service team. Any hardware or software problems are addressed and solved in the shortest possible time.

The Formulatrix imaging systems are excellent, we have several in our lab and they all work well. I can only recommend them.
University of Oxford - Division of Structural Biology
We have had our ROCK IMAGER 1000 for nearly 2 years and have setup and imaged >7000 plates in that time. The system has performed very reliably over that span from a mechanical standpoint and the associated Rock Maker software has made tracking, viewing and organizing our many projects simple and easy. The seamless integration of our Formulatrix Formulator with the imaging system has allowed us to carry out optimizations in a high throughput manner as well. Just as important is that the service and support have been excellent, with most issues dealt with remotely and new customer-driven features added at regular intervals.

We buy a lot of products for FORMULATRIX such as ROCK IMAGER (both 4c system and RT system), FORMULATOR and NT8 for protein crystallization when using this machine we do face some problems and once I even want to return them back but people from FORMULATRIX always try their best to solve the problems. Finally, I think FORMULATRIX is really a responsible company and they always try their best to serve the customers. More important, the products are easy using.
