New detector accelerates protein crystallography

MX Beamline at BESSY II works about 2 to 3 times faster than before:

In February a new detector was installed at one of the three MX beamlines at HZB. Compared to the old detector the new one is better, faster and more sensitive. It allows to acquire complete data sets of complex proteins...
