XRD analysis using the ARL EQUINOX 100 X-ray Diffractometer

25 Mar 2024

X-ray diffraction (XRD) is essential for investigating powder and bulk samples, as it provides valuable information about crystalline structures that complements findings from other analytical techniques. In this application note, Thermo Fisher Scientific discusses the role of drug analysis in modern forensic science, emphasizing the importance of XRD analyses. The Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ EQUINOX 100 benchtop XRD instrument is highlighted for its reliable data collection and analysis capabilities. It can measure drug related samples within 10-minute measurement time. The combination of MDI JADE 2010 and ICDD pdf 4 organics database allows qualitative and quantitative phase analysis (WPF Rietveld refinement) of the samples.
