For a list of synchrotrons please see Synchrotron beamlines

The following beamlines offer mail-in service or remote access: (compiled from the CCP4 BB July 2008)

1. The ALS BCSB beamlines have a mail-in type program name collaborative crystallography on beamlines 5.0.2 (MAD) and 5.0.1 (Se-SAD/ Fixed Wavelength). Remote access is currently available on the sector 5 stations (5.0.1 5.0.2 and 5.0.3) for PRT members only. ALS 4.2.2 beamline has remote capability

2. Beamline 3BM1 at the Australian Synchrotron has full remote access available for users. We use the same Blu-Ice gui as SSRL and use the SAM robot. When 3ID is available for general user program (2009) it will also have full remote access capabilities.

3. BNL / NSLS Mail-in program, where three scientists spend about one full-time equivalent of effort, employing about one full-time beamline among the six PXRR beamlines. Access to Beam Time Mail-in Program

4. The canadian light source has at least mail in protein crystallography.

5. MacCHESS does "mail-in" collection on all PX beamlines.

6. All the ESRF MX/PX beamlines (ID14-1, ID14-2, ID14-4, ID23-1, ID29), and the CRG beam-line BM14, have remote access. For industrial users there is also the MXpress mail in service:

7. SEC-CAT 22-ID and 22-BM at APS will do both mail-in and remote

8. SPring8 in Japan has a mail-in system.

9. SSRL all PX beamlines have remote capability. About 75% of the users use fully remote data collection routinely

10. CAMD's PX beamline has a mail-in program for both consortium members and outside users.

11. BESSY BL14.1 and BL14.2, The BESSY-MX group is offering the "mail-in" service for industrial collaborators.

12. SLS ( For industrial users there is a Mail-In Service available since more than 3 years. For technical questions please contact Joachim Diez ( or Clemens Schulze-Briese (, for questions about contracts please contact Philipp Dietrich ( Remote operation is in preparation for all beamlines.
