Rigaku's BioSAXS-2000nano SAXS camera is specifically designed to meet the needs of the structural biologist. Based on a patented 2D Kratky design, the BioSAXS-2000 takes up much less space than a conventional 3-pinhole camera but offers better flux characteristics.
Best of all, the BioSAXS-2000nanocan be mounted on the open port of a Rigaku rotating anode X-ray generator, fully taking advantage of existing infrastructure, or it can be mated to a Rigaku microfocus sealed tube X-ray source.
The BioSAXS AUTO configuration integrates two time-saving features: an Automatic Analysis Pipeline based on the world standard ATSAS package from EMBL Hamburg and an Automatic Sample Changer for unattended overnight operation.
No Need to Wait for Beamtime at a Synchrotron
The BioSAXS-2000nano is equipped with the new OptiSAXS optic, a doubly focusing multilayer optic whose focus is at the detector. The OptiSAXS gives better than two fold improvement in flux in comparison to its predecessor, resulting in higher brilliance at the sample position and data collection times in the range of minutes. Therefore, the BioSAXS-2000nano brings a beamline experience to home laboratory SAXS experiments.
