Protein Crystallisation Reactor


This “cell” is used as a reaction vessel to investigate the crystallisation of proteins under conditions of weightlessness. It is used in shuttle missions and on the international space station ISS. The reaction vessel is manufactured completely from quartz and fused directly according to the Hellma process.

The inner surfaces are polished with interferometric precision and have marker crosses for positioning. The outer surfaces are supplied with an anti-reflection coating.
