Agilent Technologies launches new X-ray diffractometer
6 August 2012 16:39 in Scientific Company News
Agilent Technologies has announced the launch of a revolutionary new X-ray diffractometer for use in the collection of high-quality diffraction data from crystalline samples of biological macromolecules.
The GV1000 X-ray Diffractometer incorporates innovative gradient vacuum technology and an extremely compact high-brilliance X-ray source, offering both extreme reliability and ease of use.
It can be combined with the manufacturer's precision four-circle goniometer and high-performance CCD detectors, representing the highest performing single-wavelength system in Agilent's expanding X-ray crystallography portfolio.
Dr Leigh Rees, Agilent's general manager for X-ray diffraction, said the system "offers many significant benefits over competing rotating anodes and will prove to be at the very top end of in-house systems available to protein users and the crystallographic community as a whole".
Last month, the company announced a new alliance with the US Food and Drug Administration, the University of California, Davis and the Centers for Disease Control to create a groundbreaking foodborne pathogen genome database.
