New User Facilities

BL14-1 is equipped with a single axis fast microdiffractometer since November 2016.

A 5 micron microcollimator is avaiable on BL12-2 since November 2016.

We have updated the default versions of CCP4 and phenix to 7.0 and 1.10.1-2155 as of May 1st 2016.

It is now possible to stop and delay the beam optimization on BL12-2. This is only recommended if the users are not planning on using any of the microcollimators for data collection within the next few hours.

As of January 2016, we have completed the move to a new file server. To access your data, use the generic directory path /data/'username'. Note: Some software GUIs store the explicit file path, so that older projects or files can no longer be found. In many cases, you just need to replace the initial part of the path with /data/'username'. In the case of Phenix, a possible fix is to edit the file '*_jobid.eff' found under projectdirectory/phenix/project_data/
