Micro-focus rotating anode X-ray generators equipped with CCD camera or image plate detector are typically used as in-house X-ray source for protein crystallography.
Instruct has 3 centres offering In-house X-ray source across Europe. Navigate the map and click on the pins to discover centres near you.
Instruct currently provides stations adapted to crystal screening and stations better suited for data collection of crystals with large unit cell dimensions, according to the optics connected to the rotating anode X-ray generators within their labs. Crystal screening stations can be equipped with crystal mounting robots for higher throughput. Basic automatic centring can be provided based on the centre of the loop. Improvement is planned by means of UV-light to detect micro crystals off the loop centre.
