The XtaLAB Synergy-i single crystal X-ray diffractometer includes a high-flux, low maintenance microfocus sealed tube X-ray instrument with a high precision 4-circle kappa goniometer and Rigaku’s own Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) X-ray detector known as the HyPix-Bantam. The XtaLAB Synergy-i contains the latest technology and can be upgraded from a single source to a dual source instrument. The system can be equipped with Cu and/or Mo sources allowing for a broad range of sample types to be evaluated. The XtaLAB Synergy-i is controlled by the fully-integrated, user-inspired CrysAlisPro software package that is capable of collecting and processing data efficiently and accurately, so you achieve the best data possible. The XtaLAB Synergy-i is a full-featured single crystal X-ray diffractometer that requires little servicing to maximize uptime and throughput. It is the ideal diffractometer for crystallography research laboratories.

Benefits:

Whether you select a dual source microfocus configuration or a single source microfocus configuration the XtaLAB Synergy-i contains the latest technology, from the sources to the detector.

  • The scintillator-free hybrid photon counting (HPC) detector has been designed by Rigaku to ensure cutting-edge performance with true digital photon counting technology for unparalleled sensitivity.
  • The microfocus PhotonJet- i sources (Cu/Mo), available in dual or single source configurations, have low power consumption, yet provide high flux in order to study a variety of sample types.
  • The 4-circle Kappa goniometer ensures that the most efficient data coverage is achieved even for the lowest symmetry P1 samples whether Cu or Mo radiation is used.

Oxford Cobra

The Oxford Cobra is the non-liquid nitrogen Cryostream. Combining the efficiency of a Cryostream with the advantages of a non-liquid system, the Cobra offers the ultimate solution for both macromolecular and small molecule crystallography.

Oxford Cryostream 800

The 800 Series Cryostream is the most robust, efficient and user-friendly liquid nitrogen based low temperature system available today. Specific features include a superior laminar flow system, meaning virtually zero risk of icing, extremely quiet running and a fast-start system resulting in a cool-down time to 100K of just 20 minutes.

XtalCheck

The XtalCheck system includes software that facilitates both visual and diffraction imaging of crystallization experiments. With the XtalCheck system, one can easily survey many crystallization experiments by eliminating the need to harvest and cryo-cool samples. Moreover, one can perform serial crystallography experiments, by collecting data from multiple crystals, to achieve complete data sets that can be used for structure solution.

手動タイプ PlateMate

  • シンプルかつ軽量で扱いやすいデザイン
    ゴニオメーターヘッドと同じマウント機構を採用。既存のX線回折装置に簡単に取り付けることができます。SBS規格に準拠した結晶化プレートに対応可能で、MiTeGen社製 In Situ–1 Crystallization Plateでの測定に適したデザインです。
  • 簡単かつ正確なセンタリング機構
    水平および垂直方向に搭載した目盛付きのレールに沿って結晶化プレートを動かすことで、すべてのウェルに対して簡単にセンタリングすることができます。また、微調整機構により、微小な結晶であっても正確なセンタリングが可能です。
  • 結晶化プレート中の結晶を測定
    見分けのつきにくいタンパク質結晶と塩・沈殿剤などの結晶を、ドロップ内から取り出すことなく迅速に判別し、さらに分解能などの品質をチェックできます。
  • 構造解析用のデータ収集も可能
    スクリーニング目的のX線回折像取得のみならず、構造解析用の回折強度データの収集も可能です。結晶化溶媒から取り出すだけで損傷してしまうような特殊な結晶も、その環境下で測定できます。

電動タイプ XtalCheck

  • GUIからコントロール
    すべての機能はGUIから操作できます。
    モーター制御により、微小な結晶であっても正確なセンタリングが可能です。また、複数のウェルや、ドロップ内の複数の結晶を事前に指定することで、簡単な操作で複数の結晶を一度に評価できます。
