The FR-X was designed to be utilized in structural biology and material science, and provides the highest usable X-ray flux available for the laboratory researcher.
The new design provides 20% more flux compared to the previous model as well as a new direct-drive anode that reduces maintenance expense considerably. The standard dual port design can be coupled with an optional dual wavelength anode to provide the ultimate in experimental flexibility and end-station utilization.
The FR-X design is based on decades of proven craftsmanship to provide outstanding instrument reliability. With a Rigaku X-ray source you do not take a chance that your X-ray source will fail to provide you with the uptime and performance that your research demands.
Perhaps the most important feature of the FR-X is the standard dual port configuration. When investing in a high-end X-ray source, only a dual-port configuration allows one to obtain the most from their investment as well as take full advantage of the photons that are generated. Whether you have the need for two experimental end-stations now or not, there is no reason to limit the expansion of your facility in the future.
