1. A method for performing array microcrystallizations to determine suitable crystallization conditions for a molecule, the method comprising:

  • forming an array of microcrystallizations, each microcrystallization comprising a drop comprising a mother liquor solution whose composition varies within the array and a molecule to be crystallized, the drop having a volume of less than 1 microliter;

    storing the array of microcrystallizations under conditions suitable for molecule crystals to form in the drops in the array; and

    detecting molecule crystal formation in the drops.
