AB - The BioMAX beamline at MAX IV is devoted to macromolecular crystallography and will achieve a high level of experimental automation when its full potential is reached due to the usage of high end instrumentation and comprehensive software environment. The control system is based on Tango and Sardana for managing the main elements of the beamline. Data acquisition and experiment control is done through MXCuBE v3, which interfaces with the control layer. Currently, the most critical elements such as the detector and diffractometer are already integrated into the control system, whereas the integration of the sample changer has already started. BioMAX has received its first users, who successfully collected diffraction data and provided feedback on the general performance of the control system and its usability. The present work describes the main features of the control system and its operation, as well as the next instrument integration plans
