Rigaku Corporation is pleased to announce it attended the 71st Southeastern Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society, (SERMACS) in Savannah, Georgia. Held each fall, the meeting includes a variety of symposia topics covering analytical, biological, computational, inorganic, medicinal, organic, physical, and polymer chemistry.

Rigaku, a key sponsor of the event, presented its lines of benchtop X-ray analytical instrumentation.

On the opening day of the event, a presentation on single crystal X-ray diffraction technology was given entitled, “The Rigaku Oxford Diffraction XtaLAB Synergy: from powder analysis to electron density study and protein structure solution.” The session highlighted the performance of the Rigaku XtaLAB Synergy-S X-ray diffractometer.

Instruments in the XtaLAB Synergy series from Rigaku Oxford Diffraction include a dual wavelength microfocus sealed tube (the XtaLAB Synergy-S), or microfocus rotating anode (the single wavelength XtaLAB Synergy-R and dual wavelength XtaLAB Synergy-DW diffractometers).

Each system includes a combination of a powerful microfocus X-ray beam and highly sensitive direct photon counting Rigaku HyPix detector, designed to allow powder, small molecule and protein crystallographers to cover a wide range of crystallography experiments.
