(Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology) MIPT's scientists that previously succeeded in growing protein microcrystals within just three weeks to make studying proteins easier, offer an alternative to the conventionally used SONICC method of protein crystal detection. Their proposed CARS technique can detect microcrystals in the lipid composition, while also spotting the subtle features of protein structure, which is important for future research and drug development. They also expect CARS to make its way into the next generation of commercial equipment.
