Macromolecular crystallography (MX) is a method for determining the structures of proteins, viruses and nucleic acids (RNA and DNA) from X-ray diffraction of crystals of those molecules. The high resolution 3D structures are important to understand the processes that take place in living organisms and also for practical applications such as drug design.

Automounters are intended to help maximize throughput at synchrotron beam lines where heavy shielding and safety interlocks slow manual access to the experiment.

It is possible to collect data using the MacCHESS beamline from a remote networked connection.

Crystallography software available at MacCHESS

Beamtime for macromolecular crystallography at MacCHESS is likely to generate lots of data which needs to be transported back to the home lab.

A number of features are available to macromolecular crystallography users to enhance the data collection experience, ranging from conveniences for all users to extras targeting specific “non
