Mail-in SAXS Description



At the Structurally Integrated Biology for Life Sciences (SIBYLS) beamline, we offer a small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) data collection service for users world wide. Both academic and proprietary interests are welcome.

For High-Throughput SAXS (HT-SAXS), users "mail in" their samples in a sealed 96-well plate for analyses.

For Size-Exclusion Chromatography SAXS (SEC-SAXS), users send us single samples and buffers, and then choose from our selection of size-exclusion columns.

Within a week users will have access to their SAXS results as well as preliminary analysis of sample quality by our staff.

Our Mission

We strive to collect your SAXS data with the same care and attention as if you collected it yourself.


SAXS data collected at SIBYLS beamline 12.3.1 has contributed to innumerable publications. As the research community becomes more familiar with what SAXS has to offer and as we continue to improve our systems, offering higher quality data, the rate of publication continues to grow.
