Recently upgraded for faster throughput. Ideal for MX, XAS on crystals, small molecule crystallography & powder diffraction.

We are back online! Both CMCF-BM and our newly-upgraded CMCF-ID beamline are accepting requests for beamtime through the CLS User Portal.

CMCF is an umbrella facility which operates two beamlines, CMCF-ID and CMCF-BM, 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.
