Purpose of the platform (operated by IBS & ESRF)

The Cryobench laboratory offers...

UV/vis absorption spectroscopy,
fluorescence (emission) spectroscopy,->]
fluorescence lifetime measurements,
Raman spectroscopy,

...of protein crystals mounted on a goniometer between three objectives, usually cooled by a cryogenic stream.

Additionally, it is possible to perform spectroscopic experiments directly at X-ray beamlines:

online UV/vis and fluorescence spectroscopy (available twice per year),
online Raman spectroscopy at beamline ID29 (available upon request).
