Research never stops

Diamond Light Source

Diamond Light Source Ltd is a scientific institute; the UK’s national synchrotron facility, based in South Oxfordshire. The Diamond synchrotron is a huge scientific machine designed to produce very intense beams of X-rays, infrared and ultraviolet light, called synchrotron light. These intense pinpoints of light, which can be as much as 10 billion times brighter than the sun, allow scientists to study samples in incredible detail, right down to scale of atoms and molecules.

Evotec has access to the state-of-the-art synchrotron technology at Diamond Light Source. Via Diamond, Evotec is able to access a world-leading X-ray diffraction data collection facility on a routine basis. The structural biology team at Evotec visits the macromolecular X-ray crystallography beamlines up to twice a month, allowing collection of the highest possible quality of data for its collaborators.  Evotec sits on both the Science and Industrial Advisory Committees of Diamond, forging a powerful link to future developments of the synchrotron facility.
