In addition to the single source configuration of the D8 QUEST, the larger enclosure of the D8 VENTURE hosts all our high intensity sources for working on even smaller, weakly diffracting crystals: the TXS for Mo- and Cu-radiation and the METALJET offering liquid metal technology.
- Cu-radiation for absolute configuration and protein screening
- Mo-radiation for high throughput and charge density
- Ag-radiation for charge density and high pressure experiments
- Ga-radiation from METALJET X-ray source for high-end structural biology and most demanding chemical crystallography samples
The Gallium-Kα emission line – 1.34 Å – is close to that of copper for maintaining the proven benefits of Copper-Kα radiation.
Yet, Gallium’s shorter-wavelength adds a number of advantages, such as reduced radiation damage, a greatly improved signal to-noise ratio due to an increased detector sensitivity, reduced X-ray absorption by the sample and reduced scattering by both mother liquor and air. The METALJET takes advantage of all these benefits, with an ultra-intense Ga-Kα beam.
