European Synchrotron Radiation Facility
ID30B is the second branch of the canted ID30 beam line. This beamline is tunable between 6 and 20 keV (1.9 – 0.62 Å). Two 1.4 m U35 undulators ensure a high intensity (~6 x 1012 phs/s-1/mm2) X-ray beam. The vertical focusing is achieved at different energies by using CRL combinations. The horizontal focusing is performed by an eliptical mirror in the experimental hutch and contains three polished stripes for harmonic rejection at low, medium and high energies. The beam size at the sample position can be changed between 20 and 200 µm in diameter and is cleaned using beam definition apertures. 1
Automated Systems at ID30B:
FlexHCD is a versatile, high performance, sample changer system designed to be used in automatized synchrotron beamlines to handle biological crystallized samples at cryogenic temperatures. It allows the users to automatically transfer samples from the High Capacity Dewar to the diffractometer and back. It is based on a 6-axes robotic arm and a high capacity dewar. FlexHCD has been developed by the EMBL Diffraction Instrumentation Group in collaboration with ESRF. 2
