X-ray Instrumentation
  • The home source is composed of a Rigaku Micromax 007 high frequency microfocus X-ray generator, a VariMax high flux optic with adjustable divergence, an AFC11 4-axis goniometer, a Pilatus 200K 2D area detector, and an Oxford Cobra cryo-system. HKL-3000R is used for data collection and processing and is run on a Linux CentOS Dell Precision Workstation. 
  • Rigaku/MSC Crystallization Robotics include: Alchemist liquid handling robot for optimization screen production, Phoenix drop setting robot, and 2 Desktop Minstrel imaging units and a plate hotel that are all networked and integrated with Crystal trak software.
