The Northeastern Collaborative Access Team (NE-CAT), located at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), is funded by its member institutions and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). NE-CAT’s mission is to construct and operate synchrotron X-ray beamlines custom-built for technically challenging problems in structural biology.
NE-CAT operates two undulator beamlines, 24-ID-C and 24-ID-E. Both provide exceptionally stable X-ray beams for crystallographic data collection. These beamlines are also available for remote data collection.
The 24-ID-E beamline is a fixed energy microdiffraction beamline delivering X-rays at 12.66 keV, optimized for Se-SAD experiments. It is equipped with a CCD-based ADSC Quantum 315 detector.
