CMCF-IDUpgrade In Progress
CMCF-ID is currently undergoing a major upgrade. We expect to return to normal operations in 2021, brighter, faster, and better than ever before.
CMCF-BM has recently been upgraded for faster throughput and is ideal for MX, XRF/EXAFS on single crystals, Chemical Crystallography & XRD.
Our planned maintenance activities are on hold due to the COVID-19 response. CLS is in standby mode, and there is currently a special Call for Proposals for COVID-19-related research.
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.
