Lysozyme S-SAD phasing

AppNote PX024: data collection on the XtaLAB Synergy Custom


A modern, home laboratory X-ray diffraction system with the latest in photon counting detector technology should deliver high quality data in a short amount of time. Rigaku Oxford Diffraction currently promotes the XtaLAB Synergy Custom outfitted with a MicroMax-007HF rotating Cu anode, VariMax optics, ultrafast Kappa goniometer, and a HyPix-6000HE hybrid photon counting detector as the gold standard for a home laboratory X-ray diffraction system. To back up that claim, we present here the results of a 2.25-minute data collection on a 0.2 mm lysozyme crystal along with the sulfur SAD phasing of the data set.
