Now Open: First ESS Call for Deuteration and Crystallisation Support

Onyx Robot

The Deuteration and Macromolecular Crystallisation (DEMAX) Platform at ESS has opened its first call for proposals. DEMAX offers three pillars of support: biological deuteration (e.g. cell paste, soluble proteins, lipids, membranes), chemical deuteration (e.g. small organic molecules, surfactants, phospholipids) and crystallisation (biological macromolecules e.g. proteins).

At this time, DEMAX offers the following kinds of deuterated materials and services:

Total yeast-derived lipids
Tail-deuterated lipids
Saturated fatty acids/alcohols/halides/thiols
Oleic acid
Surfactants (e.g. sugar, amino acid)
Lactic acid
Bacterial cell pastes
Recombinant proteins
Support for large protein crystal growth (incl. sitting drop vapour diffusion, dialysis, batch, optimisation, targeted screening, testing with X-rays)

For this call, access is not limited to ESS member countries, and is free of charge. The deadline for proposal submissions is 5th April 2019. Find more information here: https://europeanspallationsource.se/node/244384
