Non-destructive measurement of particle size and size distribution

The World’s First and Only Benchtop Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) Instrument

  • Rigaku Oxford Diffraction XtaLAB mini II for chemical crystallography

    Key Features

    • SAXS measurement in the ultra-small angle X-ray scattering (USAXS) range compact Bonse-Hart USAXS camera design
    • Engineered for both quality control and research & development applications delivers nanoparticle characterization needed for regulatory compliance.
    • Non-technical operation for routine particle size distribution determinations new easy-to-use SmartLab Studio II SAXS software
    • Perfect for opaque suspensions not easily addressable with other techniques as well as solid samples like plastics, rubbers and polymers
    • Automatic sample changer for higher throughput designed for 24/7, 365 operation

Rigaku NANOPIX mini is the world’s first benchtop small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) system that is engineered to deliver automatic nanoparticle size distribution analysis for both quality control (QC) and research and development (R&D) applications. Nanoparticle size, size distribution, and particle shape are the key pieces of information obtained from SAXS. Samples may range from solutions, suspensions or slurries to solid plastics, rubbers or polymers.

Rigaku NANOPIX mini is the first benchtop small angle X-ray scattering system dedicated to the characterization of nanoparticles in both research and production environments. With a revolutionarily small footprint and performance superior to traditional “big iron” systems, this compact instrument offers enhanced angular resolution through its line-focus X-ray source and superior combination of high figure-of-merit optics.
