I03 is one of five macromolecular crystallography (MX) beamlines at Diamond. I03 is a tuneable beamline with a working wavelength range of 0.6 - 2.48 Å. The standard working wavelength is 0.976 Å (12.7 keV) with a focused beam size of 80 x 20 um (FWHM). As with all the MX beamlines, I03 uses SPINE standard pins and Unipucks for cryo-cooled samples. I03 also offers in situ experiments using SBS format plates.
I03 can provide containment measures for experiments involving biological agents in Hazard Groups 2 and 3.
The SmarGon is back from repair, but still has "issues". The chi angle can be changed, but the crystal will need to be re-centred after changing it. The phi rotation is currently unavailable.
New robot dewar installed - now holds 37 puck, 592 samples.
We will be barcoding pucks from April 2017 onwards.
Data reprocessing now available in ISPyB. See here
