Low volume drops have to be placed accurately so that the protein and the screen drops coalesce and are not distorted by the edge of the crystallization plate's subwell.
In contrast to this effect with POM no unmolten particles are visible, but oriented crystals on the upper surface of the cross section indicating that crystallization took place before particles of the subsequently applied layer could be molten, Fig.
Although the nanocalorimetric sensor enables cooling down the sample very fast, it still takes a finite time, so the starting moment of crystallization was counted not from the moment of turning the heating voltage off, but from the point where the steepest tangent to the cooling slope crosses the base line.
Ward notes that the fine details of surfaces also play a role in crystallization.
