Refer to the manual for data collection possibilities –
Read the message of the day in GDA for beamline status.
Refer to beamline specific manuals where appropriate.
Start your data back-up as soon as you can.
Load your pre-registered pucks and assign positions on the touch screen in the hutch (soon in all beamlines). Now start GDA and all your samples will be preloaded in the sample changer view (or press refresh to update if GDA was already running).
Use default file names in GDA to streamline experiments, avoiding the need to type information at each sample load, preventing mistakes and ensuring downstream processing uses the information you have provided in advance (PDB, sequence, space group).
Monitor your results from our automatic software pipelines either in Today's Jpegs webpage, ISPyB or Synchlink.
Talk with your local contact about your experiment plans – we are here to help you solve structures.
