X-ray Crystallography Condition Screening Core Technology Center

I first joined the institute as an intern in 2015, moving to a paid position in 2018. I specialize in prototyping and computer graphics, particularly 3D modeling (past prototypes displayed at right). I am enrolled as a full time student in the College of Letters & Sciences at UCLA.

Previous Work:

HT Seeding (2019 Sobol, Collazo, and Johnson)

This poster displays an experiment in high-throughput format seeding. Seed crystal, 10 mL of reservoir solution, sample, and 200 uL of sample buffer are required to attempt this protocol. Contact the crystallization facility in advance for a consultation.

Optimization Maker (2017 Collazo and Johnson)

Design expansions of your hits in a 96-well format. You can make the plate easily using a multi-channel or bring the stocks to the facility with this sheet and the volumes will be compatible with our instrumentation.

3D Print Prototyping

Formlabs 3D Printer & Blender 3D Software

To request a prototype, come by the crystallization facility and offer a description of the function, dimensions, etc. for your prototype. With our Formlabs stereolithography printer, a full-scale, super-durable plastic prototype can be made within a few days of request. Pricing depends upon size and complexity of model, on a case by case basis.

To request a prototype, send all relevant information to:

ucla.xtal.facility@gmail.com

And/or bring your idea to the crystallization facility.
