ID29 is an undulator beamline with a routinely accessible energy range of 20.0 keV and 6.0 keV (0.62 Å to 2.07 Å) intended for high intensity, high energy resolution MAD and SAD measurements. The beamline offers a highly brilliant beam (~10^13 ph/s) over the wide energy range and a quickly resizable beam size at the sample position. Beamline operation is completely automated. Pilatus 6M detector and Microdiffractometer electronics enable the use of fast meshes with variable beamsize and continous helical scans. The high flux together with a fast detector and electronic makes possible to perform percursory serial crytallography measurements using synchrotron radiation. 1
