We are sponsor

of the DGK-AK1-Workshop: Diffraction Data Collection Using Synchrotron Radiation, in Berlin.

The DGK-AK1 workshop will take place at the synchrotron BESSY-II and is organized by Dr. Manfred Weiss, MX team leader, with the support of Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB). This two-days workshop is addressed to PhD students in Biological Crystallography and focus on in-diffraction data collection at a synchrotron. It comprises a series of basic lectures and tutorials sessions.

Arinax is proud to be a sponsor of this special event which brings together young scientists in Berlin.

BESSY II and ARINAX have a long story. It started in 2007, when one of the first MD2 X-ray diffractometers was installed at BESSY on the BL14.1 beamline. 12 years later, this MD2 diffractometer is still in use today.

In 2018, BESSY II decided to upgrade the BL14.3 beamline with a new Arinax MD2-S X-ray Diffractometer.

With the diffractometer, a complete set of equipment is installed, including an HC-Lab Humidity Controller, a REX Rapid Nozzle Changer, a Colibri X-ray fast shutter , a Mini-kappa goniometer head and a Luciole Cold Light Source.

BL14.3 is still being upgraded but the MD2-S is already installed and ready to start (see BL 14.3 upgrade status on HZB official website.)
