The Kappa goniostat phi Z translation allows the crystal height to be adjusted by changing the position of the Kappa goniostat crystal mounting pins may be mounted directly onto the magnet from a cryo-vial. (NO cryo-tongs are required). The Kappa goniostat has a x-y translation stage for the alignment of crystals (It does not accept the standard gomiometer head)
Cryo-pins we currently recomend for mounting on the Kappa head using magnetic mounts may be a maximum of 24.5 mm, magnetic base to protein crystal, inclusive.
Other sizes or styles or heights may be able to be accommodated, including
- Yale style
- Harvard style
- Hampton style tall
- Hampton style short
- 1/8 brass pin
