Bruker AXS Smart APEX CCD Area Detector System
The main advantages of this system are:
- Fast data collection: An entire data set can be collected within 6 hours.
- Smaller crystal samples: Monocap collimator increases x-ray intensity up to six times.
- More powerful software: From data collection to structure solution, the instrument is equipped with a new set of powerful computer software for dealing with more difficult crystal samples and structures.
- Very easy to operate: GUI interface makes it possible for non-crystallographers to use it for routine structure determinations.
- Low temperature: Can collect data at -120 C, which stabilizes the sample during the experiment and provides higher quality data.
