Agilent Technology Seminar

How could we do better in-house diffraction experiments? Our approaches

Xrd department of Agilent Technology is originated as Oxford Diffraction, specializing in single crystal diffractometer for small and macro molecules and launched our field operation in Japan on November 2012. In our products, all core technologies including precision mechanics, cryogenics, CCD detectors, electronics, and software are developed in-house.

In this seminar, we would like to introduce our comprehensive approaches to obtain high quality datasets for precise structure analyses as quick as possible with minimizing complexities of the researchers. Several results including our simple sulfur-SAD experiments employing our diffractometer will be discussed. We also would like to introduce our unique approaches to screen ‘intact’ protein crystals sealed on the commercially available screening plates by using optical images and by spotting X-ray beam on each crystals and/or objects chose on the optical image.

We are also paying our attention for challenging samples and will soon launch our diffractometer that equips our new ultra-compact, high flux X-ray source based on Agilent’s patented ‘GV’ technology. We would like to introduce our latest approaches and also our wide portfolio to assist structural biology studies.
