Beamline Name 14-BM-C
Primary Contact: NameVukica Srajer
Secondary Contact: NameRobert Henning
Owner/OperatorBioCARS, CARS, The University of Chicago
%Time Available (general use)100
Experiments DetailsStandard fixed wavelength macromolecular crystallography. Well suited for crystallography of viruses and protein crystals with large unit cells, as well as collection of ultra-high resolution data. On-line and off-line micro-spectrophotometry is available. Fiber diffraction is also supported. Supports work with biohazards at BSL-2 and BSL-3 levels.
