At EMBL Grenoble, the Diffraction Instrumentation team develops instruments for Macromolecular X-ray crystallography, neutron crystallography and Small Angle X-ray Scattering experiments, strongly involving the Synchrotron Crystallography team and High Throughput Crystallisation team.

Current focus is on beamline automation, diffractometers for micro-crystals and automation of crystal harvesting. Several projects are developed in collaboration with the ESRF Structural Biology Group and with EMBL@PETRA-III in EMBL Hamburg.

Most of the instruments developed are commercially available from:
