X-Ray Crystallography

X-Ray crystallography

The X-ray facilities hosted in the Henry Wellcome Building provide users with the necessary infrastructure for researchers to prepare protein crystals, screen crystals & collect data in house. We also have regular access to the synchrotron facilities in the UK (Diamond Light Source, Oxford) and Europe (European Synchrotron Research Facility, Grenoble).

The X-ray crystallography facilities include:

  • Rigaku MicroMax™ 007 HF rotating anode X-ray generator with multi-layer optics
  • A Saturn 944+ CCD detector mounted on an AFC-10 K 4-circle goniometer
  • R-AXIS-IV detector modified to include a single-crystal spectrophotometer
  • TTP LabTech mosquito® liquid handling robot - Fast, high throughput crystallisation with minimal protein
  • Douglas Instruments Oryx8 crystallisation robot - Crystal optimisation and microseeding capability
  • Cartesian Honeybee crystallisation robot - Nanolitre volume crystallisation
  • Douglas Instruments Oryx4 crystallisation robot within an anaerobic chamber - Anaerobic crystallisation for oxygen sensitive systems
