ID30B / MAD

Synopsis

ID30B is a highly automated, undulator-based, tunable beamline dedicated to macromolecular crystallography.
Status:  open

Disciplines

  • Life Sciences

Applications

  • Life sciences

Techniques

  • Macromolecular crystallography

Energy range

  • 6.0 - 20.0  keV

Beam size

  • Minimum (H x V) : 20.0 x 20.0  µm²
  • Maximum (H x V) : 200.0 x 200.0  µm²

Sample environments

  • ID30B is equipped with a modified microdiffractometer (MD2S) allowing data collection from micron-sized crystals mounted on conventional supports as well in crystallisation (in situ data collection).
  • A new generation, flexible and high throughput sample changer (FlexHCD) capable of transferring samples from either EMBL/ESRF pucks or Unipucks has also been developed for ID30B.

Detectors

  • PILATUS 6M-F
