Originally conceived at ESRF and first deployed in 2005 MXCuBE, Macromolecular Xtallography Customized Beamline Environment, has with its successor MXCuBE2, become a successful international collaboration. The aim of the collaboration is to develop a beamline control application for macromolecular crystallography (MX) that are independent of underlying instrument control software and thus deployable at the MX beamlines of any synchrotron source. The continued evolution of the functionality offered at MX beamlines is to a large extent facilitated by active software development. New demands and advances in technology have led to the development of a new version of MXCuBE, MXCuBE3, The design of which was inspired by the results of a technical pre-study and user survey. MXCuBE3 takes advantage of the recent development in web technologies such as React and Redux to create an intuitive and user friendly application. The access to the application from any web browser further simplifies the operation and natively facilitates the execution of remote experiments.

  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
