Facility Details

The X-ray Crystallography Facility is equipped with a Rigaku FR-E SuperBright Ultra high-intensity rotating anode generator, and utilizes both ports with two independent diffraction stations that can run simultaneously. Each station is equipped with an X-stream cryogenic system for standard low temperature (~100 K) data collection. The system is used to collect high resolution diffraction data from native and inhibitor-bound crystals or to test and optimize diffraction quality (cryo-protectant conditions, etc.) and screen for further data collection at synchrotron sources.

Other Facility Information

High throughput crystallization studies are supported by a Phoenix microdrop liquid handling system and Formulatrix incubators with automated image analysis for detecting crystal growth. This provides the ability to rapidly identify conditions to crystallize proteins or co-crystallize proteins with interacting compounds.
