High-flux rotating anode X-ray diffractometer

A powerful and fast system for single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis

XtaLAB Synergy-R

The XtaLAB Synergy-R is the most powerful small molecule diffractometer available. It includes a high-flux, low-maintenance microfocus rotating anode, the PhotonJet-R, with a high-precision kappa goniometer and Rigaku’s own Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) X-ray detector the HyPix-6000HE. The PhotonJet-R X-ray source is comprised of a Micromax-007 HF rotating anode and a newly designed optic. It is available with either Cu or Mo anodes.

This single crystal X-ray diffractometer has been specially designed to fully integrate the rotating anode X-ray source with all system components and software making it a sleek, simple to use diffractometer without compromising the X-ray intensity.

For labs with high-throughput requirements, increasing the flux reduces data collection time and thus increases the number of samples that can be studied in your laboratory. For extremely small samples, additional flux will extend the minimum size limits for crystals that you can study.

Benefits:

  • Fast workflow due to complete integration of software and hardware
  • Excels at the most challenging applications, e.g. MOFs or incommensurate structures
  • Extremely high performance due to bright source, noise-free detector and fast goniometer speeds
  • Provides unparalleled throughput

PILATUS3 R 200K: Low maintenance, direct photon counting detector



The PILATUS3 R 200K is a hybrid photon counting (HPC) detector designed to achieve the best possible data quality for diffraction experiments. HPC detectors are direct-detection, single-photon counting devices that have essentially no noise and high sensitivity. Moreover, the high dynamic range excellent DQE characteristics for the PILATUS3 R 200K means that they it is well suited for accurately measuring weak reflections alongside very strong reflections - overload corrections and separate scans for weak and strong data are not necessary. The readout time for the PILATUS3 R 200K is 7 msec readout speed, making it capable of true shutterless data collection, thus removing errors associated with shutter open/close and goniometer start/stop events. HPC detectors have revolutionized the way data are collected at synchrotrons and the PILATUS3 R detectors bring those same capabilities to collect the best possible data at home.

Description
XtalCheck

The XtalCheck system includes software that facilitates both visual and diffraction imaging of crystallization experiments. With the XtalCheck system, one can easily survey many crystallization experiments by eliminating the need to harvest and cryo-cool samples. Moreover, one can perform serial crystallography experiments, by collecting data from multiple crystals, to achieve complete data sets that can be used for structure solution.

User-inspired software for superior X-ray diffraction data quality
Rigaku Oxford Diffraction single crystal X-ray diffractometers come complete with CrysAlisPro, our user-inspired data collection and data processing software for small molecule and protein crystallography. Designed around an easy-to-use graphical user interface, CrysAlisPro can be operated under fully automatic, semi-automatic or manual control.

Notice: New version of CrysAlisPro v38.46 released on 24th January 2017

We welcome user feedback and CrysAlisPro is frequently updated with new features inspired by users. In this way, our software is continually improving so that your diffractometer always provides data of the highest quality. Visit our forum for more information.

How to get CrysAlisPro
The software is freely available for users of Rigaku Oxford Diffraction and can be downloaded from our forum. Please register at http://www.rigakuxrayforum.com. Any queries related to the software may be answered on the forum.

Automatic Crystal Screening

At the heart of CrysAlisPro are the automatic crystal screening, data collection and strategy modules. For a typical crystal, a short pre-experiment lasting less than five minutes is recorded to evaluate crystal quality. From the first frame, CrysAlisPro automatically evaluates the crystal quality and provides the user with information regarding the unit cell, intensity estimation by resolution range and suggested frame exposure times for the full data collection. Additionally, CellCheckCSD (developed with the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Center) helps prevent the collection of known structures by automatically screening the CSD for unit cell matches.

Fastest Strategy Software

CrysAlisPro‘s sophisticated strategy software automatically calculates the optimal conditions for fast, high quality, complete data collection. All strategies are rapidly calculated based on the specific crystal orientation and unit cell dimensions. The user has complete control to optimize the strategy for a wide variety of targets including multiplicity, time and resolution. Strategy calculations are extremely fast and efficient, allowing the user to quickly adapt the data collection conditions for a variety of experiment types, with both Mo and Cu radiation.
Automatic and Concurrent Data Reduction

Data reduction and processing initialize automatically with the start of data collection and employ intelligent routines which tune the parameters to give the best data quality. Processed data are always available and accompanied by real time on-screen feedback of data quality and completeness. CrysAlisPro is programmed for multi-core data processing, meaning rapid results even from the largest data sets.

A Full Complement of Crystallographic Tools

In addition to automatic routines, CrysAlisPro includes a very comprehensive and highly effective range of tools and functions for dealing with non-standard and problematic X-ray diffraction data. These tools are available through the GUI or from a command line interface, and include:

  • Advanced unit cell finding
  • EwaldPro — Reciprocal lattice viewer
  • Twin data processing
  • Incommensurate data processing
  • Automated high pressure data collection and reduction
  • Face-indexing — with automated shape generation
  • Multi-temperature experiments
  • Powder data collection and processing
  • Precession image generation
  • Axial photos

Software Compatibility
Use CrysAlisPro to import and process frames from synchrotrons and other detector formats. Data is automatically output in HKLF format and quick links interface directly to Olex2, CRYSTALS, WinGX and Jana (for use of SHELX, SIR, Superflip and other programs, where installed).


AutoChem

AutoChem is the ultimate productivity tool for chemical crystallography, offering fast, fully automatic structure solution and refinement during data collection. 
Developed exclusively for Rigaku Oxford Diffraction by the authors of Olex2 (Durham University and OlexSys), AutoChem builds upon the success of our original AutoChem software. Seamlessly integrated as an optional plug-in for CrysAlisPro, AutoChem offers an advanced approach for automatic structure determination, with an even higher rate of success.

AutoChem can work with or without a chemical formula, intelligently using multiple solution programs and typically requiring only partial completeness to solve routine structures. In more difficult cases, AutoChem will make attempts in multiple space groups. A number of refinement options are available; atoms are modeled anisotropically where the data supports it and hydrogen atoms are included in calculated geometric positions. The structure is then re-labeled and refined to completion before a final structure report is generated.

WIT

CrysAlisPro displays the structure and key refinement parameters, and provides a link to a full Rigaku Oxford Diffraction’s edition of Olex2 — complete with AutoChem plug-in — which can be launched at any time. Here the user can review all aspects of the refinement, step back to any stage of the process and apply changes as necessary.
