The choice has never been simpler: the MICROSTAR generator sets the new standard for intensity, economy, ease-of-use and reliability. By combining next-generation electron optics, modern anode design and highly optimized X-ray optics, we are able to generate X-ray intensities which are comparable to those of second-generation synchrotron beam lines.
Simply put, the MICROSTAR puts more X-rays onto your sample to give you better data quality and higher resolution. Best of all, the MICROSTAR delivers its extraordinary performance without sacrificing reliability or ease-of-use.
"... the MICROSTAR beam now causes radiation damage to crystals at the level of a small bending magnet beamline. Room T data collection from protein crystals is out of the question, and even on frozen samples, after 2-3 days exposure to the beam, when you take them out of the cold stream, the crystals just 'explode'." - Pedro Matias, ITQB, Portugal, October 8th 2007
