Diamond has a wide-range of world-class resources to support your BioSAXS experiment.
B21: a dedicated solution state SAXS beamline
Diamond has a dedicated solution state Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) beamline that can accommodate a wide variety of aqueous-based and some limited organic solvent-based samples. In order to achieve high sample through put, B21 is equipped with a highly automated BIOSAXS robot for small volume liquid handling from a 96 well plate.
BioSAXS Robot: This allows scientists to access high-throughput solution scattering (5 mins per sample). The robot uses 96 well plates to hold samples - we can supply these and you may also use PCR strips if required. These samples are then delivered by the robot to a fixed glass capilliary inside the exposure unit which is held under vacuum to reduce background. The samples can be refrigerated while awaiting data collection if necessary.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
