Biocenter Oulu Protein Crystallography core facility offers home-source X-ray generator for macromolecular crystal diffraction experiments.
For X-ray diffraction data collection, we have Bruker Microstar X8 Proteum Cu-rotating anode X-ray generator equipped with Helios MX focusing optics and kappa goniometer. The data are collected with a Photon II detector. The detector 2θ swing-out allows data collection to high resolution. The kappa goniometer allows an efficient collection of a complete and highly redundant data set. Diffraction data can be collected with room temperature or with cryo-cooled crystals. For cryo-cooling there is Oxford Cryostream 700 series Cryostream Cooler. Data are processed with the Proteum3 software.
