Blu-Ice Experimental Control

The Blu-Ice graphical user interface (GUI) in conjunction with the Distributed Control System (DCS) allows users to configure the MC beamlines and carry out complete crystallography experiments.  The Blu-Ice GUI is extremely intuitive and straightforward to Get Started.  The GUI layout is divided into Tabs, each dedicated to a specific task: Hutch, Sample, Collect, Sorting, Screening, Scan, Raster, Microspec, and Helical Collect. A User Tab shows who is currently connected to the experiment. Video Monitoring.of the beamlines is also described.
