MetalJet Diffractometer with in-situ - Instruct-CZ

D8 Venture diffractometer (Bruker) with a MetalJet D2 high-flux liquid Gallium X-ray source, Photon II detector and Kappa goniometer. This diffractometer is used for X-ray diffraction studies of biomolecular crystals (macromolecular crystallography). The device is also equipped with an ISX motorised stage for in-situ X-ray diffraction experiments, enabling screening of diffraction properties in crystallisation plates (plus limited diffraction data collection). The beam size of 70 microns (FWHM) and its high brilliance enable very effective screening, automated in-plate screening and fast data collection. Typical exposure time per degree for protein crystals: 30-90 seconds.
