XtaLAB Synergy-R Configuration

The XtaLAB Synergy-R is the most powerful microfocus single crystal XRD (X-ray diffractometer) available, combining components to allow you to collect high quality diffraction data. Moreover, the XtaLAB Synergy-R offers a number of design features that extend the experimental flexibility to address the most challenging samples.

The XtaLAB Synergy-R system is a tightly integrated single crystal X-ray diffractometer with four basic areas of technology: a high-flux, low-maintenance PhotonJet-R X-ray source with continuously variable divergence slit, a high-precision kappa goniometer and Rigaku’s Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) X-ray detector, the HyPix-6000HE with extremely low noise and high dynamic range, and the CrysAlisPro diffraction software package with sophisticated algorithms to tie the hardware together to minimize the time it takes to measure and solve single crystal X-ray structures.

  • Powered by CrysAlis PRO

    The powerful CrysAlisPro software is freely available for users of Rigaku Oxford Diffraction single crystal X-ray instruments and can be downloaded from their forum. Please register at http://www.rigakuxrayforum.com

    CrysAlisPro has been inspired by users and suits both protein crystallograpy and small molecule crystallography. It caters for simultaneous data collection and automated analysis

  • Rigaku - Intelligent Goniometer Head

    Intelligent Goniometer Head 2 (IGH 2)

    Motorised Goniometer Head with Automated Optical Object Centering

    Rigaku launched a new version of their fantastic IGH motorised goniometer head at the IUCr 2023 conference in melbourne. This new version adds encoders to enable automatic X-ray centering for those who struggle to see their samples. It enables users to centre samples, hand-free with the cabinet doors closed in just a few sounds.

    They have also improved their AI-based optical sample centering, which already had a fantastic success rate. Rigaku engineers have even managed to reduce the size of the IGH 2, despite packing in a more capabilities!
