BL14.3 is a fixed energy beamline for macromolecular crystallography. This beamline has special equipment to perform X-ray diffraction experiments under controlled variation of crystal hydration.

BL14.3 supports the following experimental techniques:

  • De novo structure solution using SAD
  • Crystal screening
  • High resolution diffraction experiments
  • Controlled crystal dehydration using the HC1c-device
