BEAMLINE GUIDE
APS 19-BM (SBC)


The Advanced Photon Source
Argonne, IL
ALS Automounter

The SBC makes a biochemistry laboratory available to the scientific community as well as two experimental stations: an insertion-device- 19-ID, and a bending-magnet- 19-BM. SBC beamlines are well suited for a wide range of crystallographic experiments involving: crystals of macromolecular assemblies with very large unit cell, MAD/SAD phasing, crystals of membrane proteins, small weakly diffracting crystals, ultra-high resolution crystallography, and cryo-crystallography.1
