BL 11.2 C - XRD2

XRD2 is a dedicated beamline for macromolecular crystallography resulted from a joint project between ELETTRA - Sincrotrone Trieste S.C.p.A. and the Indian Institute of Science (IIS) -  Bangalore (India). The XRD2 beamline exploits a Super Conducting multipole Wiggler (SCW) as X-rays photon source.

XRD2 is dedicated to high throughput protein crystallography experiments: large tunable energy range (starting from 8.0 keV and extending to more than 20.0 keV) for SAD/MAD experiments, automated sample mounting in cryogenic environment and high speed large area detector are among some of the important features of this beamline.
