Figure 3
Evaporation test of the device versus exemplary CFS soaking solutions. Depicted are two different soaking solutions used in CFS campaigns at BESSY II, HZB. Both solutions (Solution 1 and Solution 2) already contain DMSO and a cryoprotectant. Immediately after placing the frame on top of the plate and finishing setting all drops, an image at 0 min was taken of each drop as a starting point. The evaporation observations were performed over 6 h at several intermediate time points. The images were taken with the same microscope and settings each time. Depicted here are the 30 and 360 min time points for both conditions tested. Little to no change is observed even after 360 min, thus showing high evaporation protection of the solutions by the frame.
