Over the past 25 years, BSE’s sister company, ITA, has developed a set of highly specialized automated miniature laboratories, mini-labs, for the purpose of conducting multi-purpose experiments in the micro- gravity environment of space or variable-g parabolic aircraft flight.  Mini-lab hardware is based on sliding block technology where two or three fluid samples are brought into contact and “mixed” in a laminar or turbulent manner as required by experiment protocols.  BSE’s space proven hardware has the capability to conduct simple liquid mixing “diffusion” experiments that enable a wide range of experiments from simple cell biology, seed germination, and organic crystal growth to very sophisticated industrial and biomedical cellular and protein crystallization research/experiments.  See the “Research Applications” tab in the pull down menu for a more complete listing of the research areas that the MDA, DMDA and LMA hardware can address. Optimized for protein crystallization, BSE’s space processing hardware has utilized customer/user inputs/requirements to develop six (6) protein crystal growth techniques developed since the mid 1980’s: liquid-to-liquid diffusion, osmotic dewatering (similar to vapor diffusion), magnetic mixing, step gradient and reverse step gradient diffusion, and combinations of the above.  All of these techniques have been tested in space and have provided excellent results.  See pull down menu tabs above for instrument data sheets and more detailed information about BSE space processing hardware.
