How to get access to the service of PCC

Following your registration you will receive an email with your CORE user account information enabling you to...

  • ...access the Rockmaker application through the Citrix Workspace.
  • ...schedule your crystallization experiments by accessing the crystallization calendar where you specify setup date/time, number of plates and temperature. Thereby, PCC will be ready to process your protein without delay.

Punctually deliver your sample at PCC (building 44, room J-34 at the UZH-Irchel campus).  PCC will expect your sample and will set up the crystallization experiment according to your specification.

Upon your first visit at PCC you will receive access to two RockImagers operating at 4 °C and 20 °C, respectively. You will be introduced to getting the most use from your setup experiments.
