The F1 station is the first choice for most experiments using macromolecular crystallography (MX) at CHESS.

The G1 station is used, about 50% of the time, for biological small-angle X-ray scattering (

The G3 station has recently been the focus of development of serial microcrystallography, due to its extremely powerful beam.

The A1 station is used, on a part-time basis, to supplement the F1 station for collection of crystallographic data.

F3 is a general purpose station that is sometimes used for recording diffraction from various materials.

A2 is a general purpose station sometimes used for recording diffraction from macromolecular crystals.
