Bruker Micro SAXS cameras with high-throughout nanoparticle analysis

Thursday, 19 April, 2012 | Supplied by: Bruker Pty Ltd

Bruker has announced the strategic expansion of its X-ray diffraction and scattering product portfolio into high-throughput nanoparticle analysis, based on the company’s recent acquisition of Kratky Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) technology developed previously by Hecus X-ray Systems GmbH in Graz, Austria.

A further performance breakthrough has been achieved in SAXS measurement speed and sample throughput by the integration of the ImS microfocus X-ray source and Bruker’s Vantec-1 detector into the Kratky MICRO series of SAXS cameras. A gain factor of 2-3 x over the best conventional instruments is said to have occurred, opening up fields of applications where either measurement speed or primary beam flux density are essential to collect data from weakly scattering materials or solutions.

The MicroCalix system enables researchers in chemistry and drug discovery to simultaneously execute SAXS and calorimetric investigations. The MicroPix system is suitable for high-throughput analysis of protein size, shape and size distributions in 10 min, requiring less than 10 µL quantities of diluted sample.
