Sample supports for serial synchrotron crystallography (SSX). (a) A microfabricated thin film is attached to a thin, rigid frame. For room-temperature data collection, thin sealing films are applied. (b, c) Front views of sample supports in ALS-style and SPINE-style goniometer bases. The frame shown has a width of 2.5 mm and a 1.5 × 5 mm aperture. The two holes at the bottom end of the frame in (b) allow gripping with tweezers when the frame is handled without the goniometer base.
