Many factors affect the crystallization of macromolecules such as proteins; whether it occurs at all, the rate of crystallization, and the quality of the product. Crystallization conditions are optimized by various techniques that allow one to screen as many combinations of parameters as possible, based on previous experience wherever possible.
