APEX3 & PROTEUM3 Software

APEX3 - Peak Performance, Unparalleled Ease of Use

Software is a crucial part of the investment in a crystallographic system. It provides the interface between you and your diffraction solution. With the new APEX3 software suite Bruker continues its long history of offering the most advanced software package for structure determination, from convenient sample centering to stunning reports, ready for publication.  

What does modern crystallographic software do for you?

  • APEX3 is the most comprehensive software package for single crystal X-ray diffraction (SC-XRD) using well tested first-class algorithms.
  • APEX3 handles the vast majority of crystallographic challenges, with the right level of automation for the novice, while providing detailed control for the seasoned crystallographer.
  • APEX3 is intuitive, easy to learn, professionally supported, and uses world-class algorithms and scientific engines.
  • APEX3 is designed following modern Graphical User Interface (GUI) guidelines. Most importantly, the information load reflects the problem, consistency is ensured and the output is clearly presented and self-explanatory.
  • APEX3 offers an unparalleled easy-to-use at all steps: from data collections and data integration to structure solution, refinement and structure publication.

The New Highlights

  • Most precise and accurate structures combining crystallographic and quantum chemical treatment of the organic solid state with IDEAL. IDEAL, the new add-on to the APEX3 suite, goes beyond the traditional, more than 50 years old Independent Atom Model (IAM) and models scattering contributions of bonds and lone pairs to improve structures, resulting in lower residual (R-) factors.
  • Intrinsic Phasing (ShelXT) solves the vast majority of structures in seconds with no space group input required.
  • Improved twin handling of up to eight domains with excellent graphical feedback and easy determination of the twin law.
  • New model refinement plugin for interactive graphical visualization of the three-dimensional structure including electron density and difference density maps.
  • Autostructure delivers the entirely correct structure in 87% of all cases.
  • XRD2 Routine to collect powder data from capillary or flat samples is now included.

PROTEUM3 - Outstanding Tools for the Best Protein Structures

Software is a crucial part of the investment in a crystallographic system. It provides the interface between you and your diffraction solution. With the new PROTEUM3 software suite for structural biology Bruker adds an impressive number of new features making it the most advanced software package for the investigation of protein samples: try out our new XPRESSO routine for screening and data processing and enjoy the convenience of automated data acquisition to exceptional success of automated phase determination.

If you are interested in small molecules, APEX3 is your choice for dedicated software for chemical crystallography.

What does modern crystallographic software do for you?

PROTEUM3 is easy to use and naturally guides you through the flow of the structure elucidation while keeping you informed about the progress and quality of the experiment—from quality assessment to phasing.

PROTEUM3 is intuitive, easy to learn, professionally supported, and uses world-class algorithms and scientific engines. It has the right level of automation for the novice, while providing detailed control for the expert.

PROTEUM3 is designed following modern Graphical User Interface (GUI) guidelines. Most importantly, the information load reflects the problem, consistency is ensured and the output is clearly presented and self-explanatory.

The New Highlights

  • Most comprehensive software package for protein diffraction using well tested first-class algorithms.
  • Unparalleled easy-of-use from sample mounting to data integration, scaling and phasing.
  • Easy sample screening with a comprehensive set of graphical tools for image analysis and fast and reliable indexing.
  • XPRESSO pipeline that takes automated structure elucidation to the next level.
  • Determine Phases is the new interface to Sheldrick’s programs for phasing with comprehensive graphical feedback and visualization of density maps and structures with COOT.
  • Best twin handling with indexing tools and deconvolution of the twin domains during data integration and scaling.
