Facility Instrumentation

The Crystallography Facility offers a wide variety of instrumentation including facilities for x-ray data collection, light scattering, crystallization and data manipulation.


Synchrotron Access

Advanced Light Source

The Carver College of Medicine has invested a 1/10 share in the 4.2.2 synchrotron beam line located at the Advanced Light Source in the Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The synchrotron is tuned to produce high intensity x-ray radiation and the beam line end station is set up to collect x-ray diffraction data to determine three-dimensional structures of proteins that are hard to carry out at home. Reserved time is available at this facility and enables researchers to remotely perform crystallographic structure determinations faster at much higher quality.

Data Workstations and Storage

Linux-based workstations with stereo 3D capability for processing and visualization are available for investigator use.

Netgear ReadyNAS X-Raid2 dual redundant file storage for all data collected


VR-Dual 1000 stereoscopic 3-D projector system for presentations and teaching
