TOPIQ | Supermini200 – compact, versatile and most powerful elemental analysis in petrochemicals

In this webinar we will show how the use of a compact, high performance benchtop WDXRF analyzer can simplify the elemental analysis for a wide range of petrochemical products. Ultimately, the Supermini200 can minimize instrument-operating costs. We will cover the analysis of ultra low S in fuel oils (ASTM D2622, EN ISO 20884) and the analysis of additives in lube oils (ASTM D6443, EN ISO 51399). Further we will present the advantages of using a powerful universal calibration.

TOPIQ | Micro XRD with a single crystal diffractometer

With your Rigaku single crystal diffractometer, you also have a powerful powder diffractometer ready at hand. Furthermore, this diffractometer needs only micrograms of sample to collect powder data, suitable for qualitative and quantitative analysis, as well as Rietveld refinement. This Webinar focuses on the sample preparation and the data collection of powders, using the Powder Diffraction Tool in CrysAlisᴾʳᵒ.

TOPIQ | What To Do When the Lights Go Out - Rethinking the Homelab for Structural Biology Research

The current COVID-19 crisis has forced a number of centralized facilities to go dark stopping a number of projects. What will you do to keep your and your colleagues' structures moving through pipeline? In this webinar we will take a look at how you can maintain your throughput during future shutdowns with the latest in home laboratory equipment. You will learn about the recent advances in hybrid photon counting detectors, fast goniometers, sources, automation, control and processing software, and fully integrated, turnkey systems. Macromolecular crystallography systems are not just for MX and you see how you can leverage your investment by sharing resources with the small molecule crystallographers in your organization.
