The UCR ACIF X-Ray Facility offers the following services:
Single-crystal diffraction experiment
Mo (0.71 Å) or Cu (1.54 Å) radiation
80-400K sample temperature; routine data collection at 100K
Samples mounted in Paratone oil on X-ray-transparent mounts or glued on glass fibers
Determination of absolute configuration
Generally requires at least one oxygen or heavier atom per 10 carbon/nitrogen atoms
Protein crystal screening and data collection
Transmission-mode powder diffraction experiment
Very little sample required
Samples mounted in capillaries or in oil on X-ray-transparent mounts
All charges listed are UCR internal rates for work by facility personnel.
External academic and commercial samples welcome, please email email@example.com for additional information and rates.
Unit cell determination or crystal face indexing: $75
Also can include a low-resolution structure ID/connectivity check.
Data collection: $200
Data collection and preliminary structure without final write-up.
Full structure determination: $310
Data collection; structure determination and refinement; and final write-up including experimental and refinement details, checkCIF report, and relevant tables for publication.
At this time, all work is performed by facility personnel.
