The XRDF provides services in robotic crystal set-ups, supervised crystal growth, cryo-data collection, high-resolution 3D structure determination and refinement
Uwe Sauer, X-ray Diffraction Facility (XRDF)
Single crystal X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) provides 3D structural information at atomic resolution of small molecules as well as macromolecules such as proteins, DNA, RNA, and their complexes. XRD is ideally suited for drug target screening (“High Throughput Screening”) and "Fragment-Based Drug Discovery" by determining the structure of proteins with bound drug candidates. In addition, the X-ray equipment can be used for powder and fibre diffraction.
