Granada Crystallisation Box (GCB) is a new crystallisation device designed to perform counter-diffusion experiments. Here we describe the device and its use for protein crystallisation purposes. GCB allows one to explore and exploit the coupling between crystallisation and diffusion. The role of viscous fluids, gels and/or microgravity can be enhanced by using capillary volumes, creating a perfect diffusive mass transport scenario. The use of capillaries also reduces the consumption of macromolecules and avoids the handling of crystals for X-ray diffraction data collection.
