We prefer to receive crystals in mother liquor. The best way to send samples is in sealed ampules, especially if the samples are air- and moisture sensitive. For tutorial on how to seal ampules see the movies Sealing a vial with a solid and Sealing a vial with a liquid recorded with the help of our glass-blower. The movies are ~10 MB large and may take some time to launch.
