IX experiment: a macromolecular crystallography experiment where the industrial client carries out the experiment either on site or from his/her own laboratory


A note on terminology. This procedure for our industrial clients is adapted from the existing one for academic users who come to the ESRF to do public research. For technical reasons, some of the terms used may not correspond exactly to an industrial experiment, eg. you will see "Proposal" instead of "Experiment", "Proposer" instead of "Main Contact", "Co-Proposer" instead of "Other Scientists participating in Experiment", etc.

Main Contact

The Main Contact is the scientist responsible for collecting information on behalf of the experimental team, for co-ordinating arrangements for the group and for transmitting details to the ESRF. The experiment number is linked to the Main Contact's name and password. Please consult carefully the guidelines given below before proceeding.
