MX2 micro-focus beamline for determination of challenging structures including crystals from viral and membrane proteins
 

TECHNICAL CAPABILITIES: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

 

MX1 MX2
High-throughput beamline using a bending magnet source
Micro crystallography beamline using an undulator source
 Beam size at the sample of 150 x 120μm  (FWHM, HxV)   Micro focus beam at the sample of 30 x 20μm (FWHM, HxV) 
 Flux at the sample of 1.35 x 1011 photons per second (13.0keV)  Flux at the sample of 4.0 x 1012 photons per second (12.6keV)
 Ideal for crystalline samples of >100μm or other highly-diffracting samples not requiring the flux of an undulator beam   Ideal for crystalline samples of <100μm or other poorly-diffracting samples requiring the additional available flux
 User-changeable energy: 9.0keV (1.38Å) to  17.5keV (0.71Å)  Beams of 20 x 20μm and 10 x 10μm available using a micro collimator 
   User-changeable energy: 9.0keV (1.38Å) to 15.5keV (0.80Å)
Automatic data reduction using XDS and automatic structure solution with AutoRickshaw
Stanford BluICE beamline control GUI
Temperature control at the sample position between 100 - 400K
SAM-style sample-loading robot that accepts both SSRL cassettes and unipuck pin holders
Room temperature tray screening capabilities to enable crystal evaluation in situ
Real-time data indexing, strategy and analysis, facilitating optimal experiments
Active steering of the beam to the sample position
Customised solutions and enhanced capabilities are offered by our specialist beamline team
