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, ea...

Excellent configuration to study polymers and low-volume specimens.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area: X-ray diffraction of polymers

"The micro-diffractometer is equipped with an X-ray source of very high flux. Micron-size beam, image plate detector and transmission mode add up to give one of the best combinations to study the diffraction patterns of polymers. The results contain low noise, are high resolution and take no time at all compared to diffractometers using reflection mode and sealed X-ray sources. Since the sample amount required for the measurement is also very low, it opens more avenues to study low-sample volume systems."

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

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
