"The generator is very reliable with little downtime. Apart from routine maintenance, the yearly service visit is all that's needed from the manufacturer."

Review date: 17 Feb 2010 | MicroMax-007 HF
The MicroMax™ 007 HF is the most widely used home lab X-ray source for protein crystallography.

The original MicroMax™ 007 introduced the world to the concept of a sub-100 micron focal spot size along the increased brilliance that can be more effectively used to illuminate small crystals. The current HF version increases the power loading by 50% over the original model providing an X-ray source that rivals second generation synchrotron sources - but with better beam stability and, of course, easy access.

Productivity can be measured in many ways but the up-time of a system is perhaps one of the most important issues. Unlike competing products, the MicroMax-007 HF was designed with up-time in mind. Filament changes are quick and painless with Rigaku microfocus generators. Superior Rigaku engineering has reduced this service headache to a 45 minute maintenance routine of simply changing a cartridge.

Featuring a robust direct-drive anode, the MicroMax-007 HF compact tower assembly contains both the vacuum chamber and turbo-molecular pump for fast pump downs.

MicroMax-007 HF Features:

  • Smallest focal spot size available on a rotating anode generator (70 μm diameter circle)
  • 1.2 kW power in a small beam provides greater flux density and less background for small samples
  • Unique pre-aligned and pre-crystallized filament cartridges minimize maintenance
  • Anode head can easily be moved and positioned for optimal experimental configuration
  • Choice of anode materials: Cu, Cr, Mo, and Co
  • Two ports for optimal use of instrument investment
  • Extended anode and filament lifetimes
