*****************************************************************

XAct is a stand-alone application for Microsoft Windows 95/98 that
can be used to construct, maintain, and record the results of many
crystallisation experiments. Through an extensive object-oriented
data structure, the program supports multiple users each with many
crystallisation experiments organised in a hierarchical fashion.

The program has been developed in the Laboratory for Macromolecular
Crystallography, Institute of Molecular and Structural Biology, Aar-
hus University, Denmark headed by Asc. Prof. Jens Nyborg.

XAct is being used on a daily basis in our laboratory by technicians,
students, grad. students, and post.doc.'s to set up crystalisation
trials in an organised way. At the moment, the program can be down-
loaded in a late beta-version.

The software is available free of change to all academic users after
the registration form has been completed. Registration and download
is done through the XAct homepage at

  http://zombie.imsb.au.dk/xact

This page also contains additional information about the software,
screen shots, manual, references, etc.

The program supports automatic dispensing of the designed solutions
using a Gilson model 222 autosampler attached to the PC. We are espe-
cially interested in response from people who have this equipment in
the lab and who might wish to use it for setting up crystallisation
trials.
