MX-14-3

Macromolecular Crystallography 14.3

Macromolecular Crystallography station of BL14.3

Synopsis

The beamline BL 14.3 is a fixed energy beamline for macromolecular crystallography. This beamline can perform X-ray diffraction experiments of very small crystals down to 15 micrometers. This beamline has special equipment to perform X-ray diffraction experiments under controlled variation of crystal hydration.

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 HX-Lab humidity controller
