X-ray

The ISMB X-Ray Crystallography Laboratory was completely refurbished in 2011 and houses state-of-the-art equipment for successful screening and optimization of crystallographic experiments. This research facility aims to provide a self-contained service to members of the ISMB, including:

– Robotics facilities for large-scale screening and production of de novo optimization screens.
– Facilities for manual setup, as well as crystal manipulation and freezing.
– Two temperature-controlled rooms: one at 4°C and the other at 16°C (the latter with automatic crystal storage and imaging systems for crystal detection).
– A facility for in-house data collection using a modern Rigaku detector with CCD image collection equipment.
