We are developing and improving the structural biology research environment
using the high-brilliance synchrotron radiation at SPring-8.

Call for on-demand requests for beamtimes (Non-proprietary research proposals)

The current additional beam time requests are available until 10:00 on December 13 (CryoTEM; December 25).
This guidance is for “Non-proprietary research proposal”. If you have “Proprietary research proposal”, please click here.

PX-Beamline (BL41XU, BL45XU, BL32XU, BL26B1, BL26B2)

SPring-8 MX beamlines are now accepting beamtime requests of BL41XU, BL45XU, BL32XU, BL26B1, BL26B2.
The appliable beam time is as follows.
Until 10am December 13

Beam time requests are reviewed by the L1 Subcommittee and, in principle, will be allocated on the first-come basis.
Procedure:

  1. Please select the beamtime (“Open”) in the Beamtime schedule.
  2. Send an e-mail to pxbl(followed by @spring8.or.jp) at least 10 days before the desired date. Please attach the two forms (Beamtime Survey SheetCrystal Spec Sheet) when you apply, and specify the beamline and the date. If you have a photo of the crystal, please send it too.


The minimum beamtime for each beamline is as follows.

  • BL41XU : 0.25shift (2 hours). Remote access available
  • BL45XU : 0.25shift (2 hours). Automatic measurement available. Please read here for the operation of automatic measurement on BL45XU.
  • BL26B1 : 1shift (8 hours).
  • BL26B2 : 1shift (8 hours). Remote access available
  • BL32XU : 1.5shift (12 hours). *0.25 shift (2 hours) only automatic measurement without visit.


CryoTEM

SPring-8 CryoTEM is now accepting machine time requests.
The applicable machine time are as follows.
Until 10am December 25

Machine time requests are reviewed by the L1 Subcommittee and, in principle, will be allocated on the first-come basis.
Procedure:

  1. Please select the machine time (“Open”) in the Machine time schedule.
  2. Send an email to pxbl(followed by @spring8.or.jp) at least 10 days before the desired date. Please attach the two forms (Machine time Survey SheetSample Spec Sheet) when you apply, and specify the date. If you have a photo of the sample with an electron microscope, please send it too.


To use the CryoTEM, pre-use training is required. If you wish to have machine time before taking the training, please indicate so in the e-mail. Please contact the email address below for information on the training.
