SER-CAT has recently installed an EigerX16M detector on its ID line.  The limit of frame rate is 133Hz, capable collecting about 8000 images per minutes.  In addition to the high speed, images have lower background and a top-hat peak profile that may improve data quality if used properly.  The detector differs significantly from a CCD like Rayonix MX300HS it replaced.  In this talk, we’ll discus how to get the best data from a given crystal with this detector, which includes strategy, data collection and processing.
