A rotating anode X-ray source fitted with two diffractometers adapted to data collection on frozen crystals and on crystallization plates. In the latter case, we take advantage of the recently acquired G-rob plate holder for in situ diffraction recording. This alleviates the risks of crystal cracking which often during mounting in capillaries or in cryoloops, and further deterioration during freezing in liquid nitrogen.
In parallel, the CBS has regular access to the ESRF synchrotron as part of BAG shared with the AFMB (node 4 of FRISBI).
The platform shall offer soon access to fragment screening by mean of X-ray diffraction.
