MiTeGen LLC has launched the Sentinel™ Real-time Intensity Monitoring Beamstop System for X-ray beamlines based on a beamstop technology licensed from Berkeley Lab earlier this year. The device improves data collection from X-ray scattering experiments conducted by researchers seeking potential treatments for cancer, AIDS, Ebola, and other diseases.

Earlier this summer, the Compact Dynamic Beamstop developed by researchers at the Berkeley Center for Structural Biology and licensed by MiTeGen was named a finalist in the 2016 R&D 100 Awards along with six other Berkeley Lab technologies and one multi-lab collaborative effort.
