METALJET D2 PLUS
The METALJET D2 PLUS for X-ray diffraction delivers the smallest and most intensive X-ray beam of any home lab X-ray source to meet the ever increasing demands of modern structural biology including protein crystallography and Small Angle X-ray Scattering.
IμS DIAMOND II Source
The IµS DIAMOND II combines rotating anode performance with the comfort of an air-cooled sealed tube system. The IµS DIAMOND II is available for Copper (Cu), Molybdenum (Mo) and Silver (Ag) radiation.
IµS 3.0 Source
The IµS 3.0 is the first-ever microfocus source designed from the ground up for crystallography.
Our water-cooled sealed tube X-ray source delivers a large top-hat-shaped beam with excellent intensity for large and medium sized crystals in chemical crystallography.
The METALJET D2 PLUS for X-ray diffraction delivers the smallest and most intensive X-ray beam of any home lab X-ray source to meet the ever increasing demands of modern structural biology including protein crystallography and Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS). Consequently, the METALJET D2 PLUS enables you to collect data on smaller, more weakly diffracting crystals.
The world’s strongest in-house X-ray source is now even more powerful: 250 W power load on the target, extended cathode lifetime with longer uptimes and further reduced maintenance requirements define the next generation, the new METALJET D2 PLUS.
In the METALJET D2 PLUS the solid target of conventional rotating anode generators is replaced by a high-speed jet of liquid metal that can accept a much higher power load. The result is an X-ray beam that is much brighter than traditional home sources.
HELIOS MX optics for METALJET D2 PLUS transmits the X-rays to the crystal
To deliver such a small X-ray beam required technical innovation in the design of the X-ray optic with greater precision in the d-spacing of the multilayers. The HELIOS MX optics for METALJET D2 PLUS transmits the X-rays to the crystal in a uniformly small diameter, greatly exceeding the intensity of conventional X-ray sources.
The METALJET D2 PLUS was developed in collaboration with Excillum and is fully integrated into the D8 VENTURE cabinet, resulting in a small-footprint diffraction system. The source mounts directly on the goniometer ensuring easy and stable downstream alignment guaranteeing an excellent overall system precision.
By default, the D8 VENTURE with METALJET D2 PLUS is shipped dual-port ready, with a second port ready for another diffraction experiment, e.g. for BioSAXS investigations.
The level of integration makes the difference between a MetalJet and the Bruker METALJET D2 PLUS.
The new Incoatec IμS DIAMOND II once more pushes the limits in microfocus source technology for crystallography:
The IμS DIAMOND II incorporates two major technical innovations:
The IμS DIAMOND II - a strong family heritage
Since its introduction in 2006 more than 1700 IμS sources have been installed and over 96% of these are still operational. This makes the IμS both the world’s most successful and the most reliable microfocus source. The enhanced performance of the fifth generation IμS DIAMOND II is coupled with all the operational advantages which have made previous IμS generations so successful:
The IµS 3.0 is the first-ever microfocus source designed from the ground up for crystallo-
graphy. Conventional microfocus sources adapt technology that was originally developed for radiography (non-destructive testing) and are thus not optimal for X-ray diffraction.
The IµS 3.0 makes no such compromises: every aspect of the source is specifically designed and manufactured for X-ray crystallography.
This means that you get a much brighter beam than ever before: up to twice the intensity of conventional microfocus sources. The IµS 3.0, available in our D8 Solution Second Generation, also features significantly better stability than conventional sources.
Best of all, the IµS 3.0 retains the legendary reliability and long tube lifetimes of the IµS family, still backed by the industry leading 3 year warranty.
Available in the D8 QUEST and D8 VENTURE with Cu, Mo and Ag Kα radiation.
Our water-cooled sealed tube X-ray source delivers a large top-hat-shaped beam with excellent intensity for large and medium sized crystals in chemical crystallography. The source can be combined with a flat graphite monochromator for Cu and Mo radiation. The TRIUMPH monochromator is available for Mo radiation as an alternative to further increase the intensity. The sealed tube is powered by 3 kW highly-stabilized medium-frequency generator featuring an automatic monitoring of all important parameters as part of the DAVINCI concept.
Since both, tube and generator are water-cooled heat dissipation to the air is minimized.
For smallest crystals in chemical crystallography higher intensity sources, such as the IμS 3.0, IµS DIAMOND II or the METALJET D2 PLUS are available. These sources also should be used for the investigation of protein crystals.
