Lighting the Way

Next week, Linkam will be taking a short trip to Didcot, in Oxfordshire, for the ‘UK Bio-XFEL Single Particle Imaging Workshop’ hosted by Diamond Light Source (the UK’s national synchrotron science facility). The event will take place on the 2nd and 3rd June in the Pickavance Theatre at the Science and Technology Facilities Council, at Harwell. 

The two day workshop is aimed at the life science sector, mainly biological and biomedical. X-ray Free Electron Lasers (X-FEL) have been used by biological researchers in x-ray crystallography, but another application - Single Particle Imaging (SPI) - is gaining rapid attention due to its ability to determine 3D structures without crystallisation. The workshop gives voice to field experts and focuses on encouraging and demonstrating the use of X-FEL for SPI to laboratory scientists.

Come over to our stand to see our cryo-correlative CMS196, the tensile TST350 and the high temperature TS1500.

We look forward to seeing you there and discussing your sample characterisation needs!
