05A Protein Microcrystallography

Endstation(s)

  • Integrated beam shaping: 5 to 50 μm beam, user selectable
  • Changeable beam divergence: 0.1 to 0.5 mrad divergence, user selectable
  • On-axis sample video: parallax error-free and real time imaging
  • High precision PHI axis: < 1 μm SOC, suitable for microdiffraction
  • Maximum PHI rotation speed up to 130 deg/s: suitable for inverse-beam experiments
  • High-speed and large-size area detector: suitable for shutterless fine-slicing data collection
  • Grid scan: find the best diffracting area
  • Helical scan: mitigate the radiation damage
  • Automatic sample changer: enable high throughput crystal screening
  • Remote access capability: save money and time
