Bruker Alignment Guarantee

Bruker is committed to not only provide you with the best possible instrumentation, but also to certify both highest hardware and data quality.

The Benchmark in X-ray Powder Diffraction Data Quality

Only the highest data quality can adequately represent both the value of your samples and your effort. Bruker’s quality assurance measures give you the certainty that your data is correct.
Bruker is committed to not only provide you with the best possible instrumentation, but also to certify both highest hardware and data quality. Each single instrument must successfully pass the Bruker instrument verification procedure since its introduction in 2003.

Alignment Guarantee for all D8 Diffractometers

Bruker has always been at the forefront of providing highest instrument and data quality. This is not only expressed by a smallest step size of 0.0001° 2Theta, but – more importantly – by an accuracy of 0.01° 2Theta on peak positions.

The D8 ENDEAVOR, D8 ADVANCE and D8 DISCOVER come with a unique alignment guarantee, documented in the Bruker Instrument Verification Booklet. Before delivery and at installation each instrument has to pass strict tests based on the internationally accepted, most current standard reference material SRM1976 by NIST:

  • The accuracy of each peak position ≤ ±0.01° 2Theta with respect to the certified values, over the whole angular range.
  • The certified relative intensities and instrument resolution (FWHM) are verified.
  • The most current NIST SRM 1976 is always included with each instrument
  • Optional IQOQ procedures for regulated industries such as the pharma industry based on the instrument verification booklet, facilitating operational qualification (OQ) after installation of upgrades or repairs performance qualification (PQ) at any time.

The ATLAS Goniometer: Industry Leading Accuracy – Guaranteed!

For particularly demanding applications that require even more accurate and reliable peak positions, shape and intensity, Bruker takes data quality to the next level: the advanced goniometer design of the ATLAS delivers the highest angular positioning accuracy, increasing the reliability of measured data. At the heart of every D8 DISCOVER Plus solution, the ATLAS pushes the complete solution alignment guarantee even further:

  • Guaranteed angular accuracy ≤ ±0.007° 2Theta over the entire angular range determined on the peak position of NIST SRM 1976
  • Increased spatial accuracy providing highest beam position stability in both the equatorial and axial planes
  • Verification of the certified relative intensities and instrument resolution (FWHM)
  • Optional IQOQ procedures for regulated industries such as the pharma industry based on the instrument verification booklet, facilitating operational qualification (OQ) after installation of upgrades or repairs performance qualification (PQ) at any time.

D2 PHASER – No Need to Compromise in a Benchtop

The D2 PHASER delivers unrivalled data quality and collection speed in a benchtop XRD system. With its superior resolution as well as low-angle and low-background, the instrument is the perfect solution for all powder diffraction applications from phase identification, quantitative phase analysis, up to crystal structure analysis.
Only Bruker AXS additionally guarantees an unparalleled instrument alignment equal or better than ±0.02° 2Theta over the entire angular range using the verified Bruker corundum alignment standard. Accurate and precise data for all applications thanks to a rigorous instrument verification protocol.
