EchoTherm programmable, vibration-free chilling incubators from Torrey Pines Scientific, Carlsbad, Calif, are designed to improve the success rate of protein crystallization. The incubators can be programmed to vary temperatures precisely from one set point to another repeatedly in a programmed routine, increasing the success rate of protein crystallization. The oscillations in temperatures from one point to another have been shown to create favorable crystallization pathways. Temperatures are settable from 4.0°C to 70.0°C. The units are Peltier-based for heating and chilling. They have no compressors or chlorofluorocarbons, and are vibration-free, making them ideal for performing protein crystallization.
