Protein Crystallography X-Ray Facility

IMCB X-ray facility houses two independent, state-of-the-art personal desktop beamlines: 1) a Bruker X8 PROTEUM system consisting of a MICROSTAR micro-focus X-ray generator, a PLATINUM135 CCD detector, and a 4-circle KAPPA goniometer, and 2) a MARRESEARCH MARDTB system consisting of a MAR345 image plate detector and a MARDTB goinostats with easymount function. The two beamlines share the same highly intense and reliable X-rays generated by the MICROSTAR. With the fast and sensitive CCD detector, and the extremely flexible goniometer, the X8 PROTEUM system can deliver within hours X-ray diffraction data with high resolution and multiplicity. The MARDTB system’s large image plate detector is ideal for crystals with long unit-cell axis, and its easymount function makes screening crystals an easier and more user-friendly process.
