Abstract

Serial femtosecond crystallography at an X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) provides a new method to solve protein structures from micrometer-sized crystals at room temperature with minimal radiation damage. Fast replenishment of the sample is needed due to the high repetition rate of the XFEL, and liquid injection methods have been used extensively. Delivery of microcrystals embedded in a high viscosity microstream provides for a considerable reduction in sample consumption compared to low viscosity liquid jets. This method allows the use of membrane protein crystals grown in lipidic cubic phase, as well as crystals mixed in other high viscosity matrixes.
