CMCF-ID

  Upgrade In Progress

CMCF-ID-endstation-gray.png

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

  Normal Operations

CMCF-BM Schematic

CMCF-BM has recently been upgraded for faster throughput and is ideal for MX, XRF/EXAFS on single crystals, Chemical Crystallography & XRD.

The Call for Proposals is now open, with a deadline of Feb 24 (noon SK time), for new proposals or projects that will expire Jun 30, 2021. See the Peer-Reviewed Access Guide for more information. Experiments are now running on CMCF-BM, while CMCF-ID is undergoing an upgrade.

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.
