Fast crystallography on a difficult sample

AppNote SMX021 - Fast crystallography on a difficult sample


To put the XtaLAB Synergy-R to the test we were kindly donated a sample from the University of Southampton. The sample was challenging in that it has a long axis of nearly 51 Å and was also very weakly diffracting. Data was collected at a temperature of 100 K with the detector distance at 34 mm from the sample. We took advantage of the HyPix-6000HE detector by running in shutterless mode. This meant that a complete data set was collected to 0.837 Å in 1 hr17 mins but with the total dose time 1 hr15 mins.
