Our most powerful protein crystallography system, the Ultimate HomeLab is a complete home X-ray diffraction system that enables data collection on a wide range of protein crystal samples and dramatically reduces your need to utilize a synchrotron source.
As all of Rigaku’s protein crystallography systems, the HKL-3000R software suite provides instrument control, data processing, and structure solution capabilities.
The foundation of this system is the Rigaku FR-X, an ultrahigh intensity microfocus rotating anode generator, that was designed from the beginning to provide the highest power in a small beam. With its 70 micron anode focal spot, long uptimes and reduced maintenance requirements, the FR-X has taken rotating anode technology to the next level.
Coupled with a VariMax optic, this small focal spot leads to a intense, monochromatic beam on the sample which is the perfect complement to optimize signal-to-noise for the small crystals used in today's protein laboratories. The usable flux produced by the Ultimate HomeLab is over 40 times greater than that of a conventional generator and optic, enabling the collection of quality data on small crystals that diffract too weakly on standard home sources.
Ultimate HomeLab Features:
The most intense X-ray source available for an in-house X-ray system
Minimizes need for the use of synchrotron time
Phase at home using the optional dual wavelength anode
A true microfocus rotating anode generator (70 μm diameter circle) that provides high flux at the sample.
2.97 kW power in a small beam provides greater flux density and less background for small samples.
Choice of area detectors (PILATUS or imaging plate) allows the user to configure the system to best meet the needs of their lab.
Optional sample changer (ACTOR)
