Controlling Growth Rates of Protein Samples
Author and Affiliation:
Herrmann, Frederick T.(NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Ala.)
Herren, Blair J.(NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Ala.)
Abstract: Apparatus enables control of humidity in chamber to control rates of growth of crystalline samples of protein. Size of drop of solution from which protein is grown made larger or smaller by condensation or evaporation of water. Situated between desiccant and water source, drop of protein solution shrinks or swells, according to which valve operator opens. Growing protein crystal viewed through polarizing film. Readily adapted to automation.
