ForMAX provides selected dedicated sample environments for its users, as listed below. More sample environments are under development.

Users can bring their own sample environments, but we can provide only limited integration (TTL trigger signals, K-type thermocouples, and stepper motors). Please contact beamline staff well in advance.


An Anton Paar MCR702 rheometer with polycarbonate concentric cylinder attachment is available at both ForMAX and CoSAXS, provided the users can operate it themselves. More complex geometries are available via a collaboration with Chalmers University.


A Cellkraft P-10 humidifier is available and can be connected to sample environments brought by users (6 mm Swagelok fitting). Humidity cells are under development.
