The MAX IV Laboratory consists today of three existing storage rings – MAX I, MAX II and MAX III. A new facility, the MAX IV, is being constructed in the north east of Lund.


MAX-lab is also hosting a highly efficient facility for high-throughput, nanovolume characterization and crystallization of biological macromolecules. It is routinely used to maximize the success rate of initial crystallization trials by sampling the maximum number of conditions using the minimum sample volume.
