SC-XRD Live Online Seminar:

Getting Started in Crystallography


Single crystal X-ray diffraction (SC-XRD) provides the most complete description of materials in atomic detail and plays a key role in diverse research fields such as chemistry, pharmacy, geology, materials, and biology.

Recent advances in hardware give better structures faster and make owning a diffractometer headache free.  APEX5 software features streamlined workflows to enable any scientist to solve publication quality structures with confidence.

In this seminar, we will show how straightforward it is to determine atomic resolution structures using the latest APEX5 software suite and provide guidance on the things to consider when setting-up a SC-XRD instrument in your laboratory.

If you are considering getting started in crystallography and have any questions, our experts will answer all your questions during the Q&A session.
