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.
