One single source for both experiments

X-ray Diffraction and Small Angle X-ray Scattering

The METALJET delivers the brightest X-ray beam of any home lab X-ray source.

Use both equally intense ports of this most powerful source to optimize your protein X-ray diffraction (PX) and small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) experiments.

When it comes to X-ray diffraction, the D8 VENTURE with METALJET and PHOTON II detector provide you with an in-house system for X-ray crystallography that often achieves synchrotron quality data.

For biological SAXS the compact, high-performance NANOSTAR system is the best possible solution for satisfying the rapidly growing demands for SAXS data to be quantitatively combined with structural data from other techniques such as crystallography, NMR, or molecular dynamics. 

The dual-port configuration can be implemented with a single end station, which gives you the flexibility to easily upgrade your capabilities. Even if you don’t need a second port right now, your future needs may change.
