I04 is one of five macromolecular crystallography beamlines at Diamond. The typical working wavelength is 0.9795 Å (12.658 keV) but it is tuneable over the wavelength range 0.69 - 2.066 Å.
The beamsize can be focussed from 10 x 5 to 110 x 100 microns across the available energy range.
All MX beamlines use SPINE standard pins and Unipucks from cryocooled samples. The beamline can be accessed remotely.
Smargon and new goniometer positioners installed - fast grid scans available.
We will be barcoding pucks from April 2017 onwards.
Data reprocessing now available in ISPyB. See here
New monochromator for I04. Big improvements, more to learn and deliver to users over coming months.
New remote access connection available
New BART robot installed on I04 - 37 pucks, 592 samples, 2.5x faster exchange times!
New focus options on I04. Variable beam size from 5 - 100 microns between 6 - 14 keV.

I04 installed a Pilatus 6M-F detector in April 2013.
Remote access available on all MX beamlines at all times since January 2013
