FR-E+ SuperBright X-Ray Source
Apr 2007
Rigaku Americas Corp.Request Info
THE WOODLANDS, Texas, April 3, 2007 -- Rigaku Americas Corp., a provider of home laboratory x-ray sources for macromolecular crystallography, announced the introduction of the Rigaku FR-E+ SuperBright, an ultrabright microfocus rotating anode x-ray source for structural biology.

With brightness exceeding some second-generation synchrotron beamlines, the FR-E+ SuperBright is the most intense home laboratory x-ray source available for macromolecular crystallography, the company said. The instrument will be featured at the Annual Spring Meeting of the British Crystallographic Association, April 17-19, in Canterbury, England.

FR-ESuperbright.jpgAn evolution of the FR-E SuperBright x-ray source, the synchrotron-class FR-E+ SuperBright produces unrivalled intensities of 1.6 x 1011 x-rays/mm2/sec, twice the flux of the closest competitive instrument, Rigaku said. This dramatic increase in performance is beneficial for all aspects of in-house crystallographic research, from exceptional data quality for very small and poor quality crystals to an overall enhancement of research productivity.

With the FR-E+ SuperBright, most challenging projects can be performed in the home laboratory: screen crystals where no diffraction was seen on a standard system, collect full data sets on samples where only low resolution reflections would normally be observed, and solve previously intractable structures.

In addition to having the brightest x-ray beam, the FR-E+ SuperBright features a true 70 µm x 70 µm focal spot, the smallest available in a rotating anode design. This allows the FR-E+ SuperBright to deliver a small and intense beam that is ideally suited to the tiny crystals typically encountered in current structural biology research. For high-throughput phasing applications, the system is uniquely available in several dual wavelength configurations, including a Cu/Cr configuration known as the FR-E+ DW SuperBright.

The part of an electrical circuit in which the electrons leave (a cathode-ray tube) or enter (an electrolytic cell) a unit in the circuit.
The analysis of the atomic structures within crystals by means of x-ray diffraction.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
A device that uses superconducting magnets to bend or accelerate charged particles. It can be used to etch very fine high-density patterns on integrated circuits.
