Technical details

ID29 is intended for room temperature serial crystallography experiments over a wide energy range (10-25 keV and 35 keV) with an extremely high flux density. It consists of two experimental hutches, EH1 and EH2. EH1 - SMX is dedicated to room temperature serial crystallography experiments, EH2 is designed to be a flexible endstation for developing and prototyping new methods.

ID29 offers two techniques: MX (macromolecular crystallography) and SMX (serial macromolecular crystallography).
