Abstract
IHI AEROSPACE Co.,Ltd (IA) had been developed the Protein Crystallization Research Facility (PCRF) and High Density Protein Crystallization Cell unit (HDPCC) under the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). PCRF is one of the two facilities in Solution/Protein Cristal growth Facility (SPCF) for Japanese Experiment Module (JEM), called "Kibo". PCRF has been launched using Shuttle at STS-123 mission in March 11, 2008. HDPCC is one of component for JAXA high-quality protein crystal growth experiment (JAXA PCG). HDPCC has been launched and returned by Progress and Soyuz spaceship from 2009 to 2013, high-quality protein crystal growth experiment was performed six times so far, and various high important results are provided.
