24.04.18 Successful fund raising for in-house SAXS system

DFG major instrumentation proposal approved

The Center for Structural Studies (CSS) is a central scientific research and service facility of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science at the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf.

The CSS aims for scientific tasks within all areas of structure-supplying methods at an atomic level. The CSS provides all steps as full-service as well as access to our infrastructure and scientific support for the individual experiments of all members of the HHU and external users.

In particular:

  • X-ray diffraction analysis  and structure determination (MX) of proteins (in house and at synchrotrons)
  • Small-Angle-X-ray-Scattering-Analysis (SAXS) of proteins and all kinds of complexes thereof (at synchrotrons)

In the near future we will also offer

  • in house SAXS for small (anorganic or organic) molecules, colloidal particles and cross-linked microgels,
  • Molecular Modelling and Simulation for macro- and micromolecules

Further details, additional services and useful information can be found under „Services“ and „Sample Preparation“.
