Below are the access modes the CoSAXS beamline participates in, and potentially useful notes regarding what is offered for each:
The BioSAXS/SEC-SAXS setup is available for Block Allocation Group access.
It is possible to get fast access to CoSAXS for sample feasibility tests in order to check for q-range, sample concentration and signal quality. The measurements should help (especially new users) in preparation of the normal proposals for a later call.
Examples of available setups: Autoloader for liquid samples, BioSAXS (including SEC-SAXS), Gel/Solid samples, Disposable capillaries, Refillable capillaries. The choice of sample environment will depend on demand so please discuss with the beamline manager before applying for beamtime. The beamline will collect together similar measurements in order to reduce setting up times.
The duration of the test is up to 4 hours, ideally performed by the local contact without the user being present. Samples should be non-toxic for safety considerations and ease of shipping. The local contact will not be responsible for sample preparation on-site or for ancillary measurements. Data will be collected for users according to predetermined plans and the user will be notified when the measurements are completed.
The complete beamline setup is available for Proprietary users, please contact the MAX IV Industrial Relations Office for further information.
