MiTeGen designs, manufactures, and distributes innovative products for Structural Biologists working in X-Ray Crystallography and Cryo-EM. MiTeGen’s strength and focus is on applying concepts and technologies from physics and related fields to address practical problems in the life sciences and other disciplines.

Founded in 2004 by Cornell Professor Rob Thorne, MiTeGen’s first products were developed to offer improvements to work being performed in crystallography laboratories, which included a focus on improving crystal harvesting (MicroMounts), room temperature diffraction screening (MicroRT System), and micro-sample manipulation (MicroTools). Shortly thereafter, MiTeGen developed Reusable Bases (or goniometer caps) that allow scientists to avoid use of epoxy and to change loops easily.

Today, MiTeGen carries over 3,000 products for X-ray Crystallography and Cryo-EM, and has developed instrumentation for rapid, reproducible cryocooling with NANUQ™, a Hyperquenching Cryocooler, and Watershed™, a Humidity Controlled Workstation. The company has evolved with a full line of products for Cryo-EM, including Gen2 Cryo-EM Pucks to simplify handling, organization, and transport of Cryo-EM samples.

Starter Kits are available for a variety of research areas:  Room Temperature Crystallography, Protein Crystallography, Cryo-EM and more. Custom engineering projects are quoted on a regular basis and MiTeGen’s collaborative approach to putting the customer first often contributes to an expanding product line.

Customers include industrial, academic, medical, pharmaceutical, and government laboratories in more than 45 countries.

MiTeGen is based in Ithaca, NY. More information can be found at mitegen.com or by calling us at 607-266-8877.



NanoTemper Technologies is committed to the best customer experience and enabling researchers to easily, efficiently, and accurately characterize proteins. With instrumentation for evaluating binding affinity, protein stability and protein quality, scientists will find an optimized workflow and responsive customer support.

Stefan Duhr and Philipp Baaske set out to build a company to address challenges researchers were facing with the ultimate goal of helping to move science forward.

NanoTemper was started in 2008 after Stefan and Philipp met at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. At the time, the effect of thermophoresis was not known within the Life Sciences community, but Stefan and Philipp knew that it was important. Realizing the shortcomings of current protein research techniques, they came up with a method, MicroScale Thermophoresis that was enormously sensitive, and would bring researchers one step closer to developing better drugs faster.

Since then the product line has grown to offer solutions for measuring binding affinities (Monolith and Dianthus), protein stability (Prometheus nanoDSF) and protein quality (Tycho).

Now, NanoTemper has over 150 employees with representation in 13 countries around the world including Germany, UK, Poland, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain, France, USA, Brazil, Russia, China, and India.

Mainly made of scientists, NanoTemper believes in collaboration, placing customers first, and the belief that there’s always a solution to every problem.

Peak Proteins

Based at Alderley Park in Cheshire UK, Peak Proteins is a contract research organisation that provides three key services; tailor-made protein reagents, protein structure information using X-ray crystallography and protein mass spectrometry.

Proteins are notoriously individual and complex reagents that require careful thought and handling, from design through to purification, to produce high quality, active protein reagents.  All our staff have years of drug discovery experience through working in large pharma organisations and have the in-depth scientific knowledge needed to produce protein reagents in a suitable format for assay development, high throughput screening, biophysics or structure determination. We have an excellent record of successful and timely delivery, and our strong, interactive client relationships has led to our rapid growth, making us an ideal partner to work with to achieve the results our clients need.
