Remote Data Collection

The SIBYLS beamline has available a SAM (Stanford Automated Mounting system) style sample mounting robot. We've christened it DOMO (Dynamic Offsite MX Operator). Our storage dewar accepts two of the widely available SSRL 96 sample cassettes, allowing you extended uninterrupted beamtime to screen crystals and collect data.

Most users will want to collect data from the comfort of their own labs. In order to do this you will need to install and configure NX Client from NoMachine. We have detailed instructions for configuring and connecting to the SIBYLS beamline for both Mac/Linux and Windows:

Data Processing with XDS

My new favorite data processing package is Wolfgang Kabsch's XDS (X-ray Detector Software for processing single-crystal monochromatic diffraction data recorded by the rotation method). It is fast and easy to use. Instructions for using XDS to process your data at SIBYLS.
