General Lab Information


This workbench is a three half-day, virtual training class that provides an introduction to data collection for new/prospective users at the LiX beamline. Our goal is to build and sustain a solid user community at LiX. We will provide you with an opportunity to collect preliminary data and encourage you to utilize this to enhance your proposal for future beam-time at LiX. Since there is limited data collection time, this workbench is not designed for you to finish an entire project, so please keep this in mind when choosing the samples you will bring.

Optional Training Workbench

An MX Macromolecular Training Workbench (2021-1) will also be held in the afternoons of February 8-10 (same days as LiX Workbench). The MX workbench is focused on an introduction to data collection for new and prospective users at the FMX and AMX beamlines. If you wish to attend the MX Workbench, please be sure to register.

The LiX Workbench (2021-1) Workshop is not open to the public. Due to a limit in capacity when submitting samples, participants interested in providing samples for remote data collection should contact James Byrnes or Lin Yang (LIX) as soon as possible.

About 16-ID LiX Beamline

The Life Science X-ray Scattering (LiX) beamline currently supports experiments in two scientific areas: biomolecular solution scattering and microbeam diffraction from biological tissues.

For solution scattering, several modes of measurements are available. During routine operations, we can switch instantaneously between high throughput static measurements and in-line size exclusion chromatography (SEC), both of which are based on flow cells. More...
