Crystallography (biological macromolecules)

The experimental station is installed at the fixed energy beamline BL14.3 for macromolecular crystallography. This station has special equipment to perform X-ray diffraction experiments under controlled variation of crystal hydration.

The station supports the following experimental techniques:

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