CMCF is an umbrella facility which operates two beamlines, 08ID-1 and 08B1-1, at the Canadian Light Source. Together, both beamlines enable high-resolution structural studies of proteins, nucleic acids and other macromolecules, satisfying the requirements of the most challenging and diverse crystallographic experiments.

  • Beamline 08ID-1 Status: Fixed Energy
  • Beamline 08B1-1 Status: Normal Operations
