Rigaku's BioSAXS-2000 SAXS system is designed specifically to meet the needs of the structural biologist. Based on a patented two-dimensional Kratky design, the BioSAXS-2000 provides higher flux on the sample and takes up much less space than conventional 3-pinhole SAXS systems. Best of all, the BioSAXS-2000 can be mounted on the open port of a Rigaku rotating anode X-ray generator, taking full advantage of existing infrastructure, or it can be mated to a Rigaku microfocus sealed tube X-ray source. The BioSAXS AUTO configuration incorporates two time-saving features: an Automatic Sample Changer for unattended overnight operation and an Automatic Analysis Pipeline based on the world standard ATSAS package from EMBL Hamburg.
No need to wait for beamtime at a synchrotron
The BioSAXS-2000 is equipped with the new OptiSAXS optic, a doubly focusing multilayer optic whose focus is at the detector. The OptiSAXS provides better than two fold improvement in flux compared to its predecessor resulting in higher brilliance at the sample position and data collection times in the range of minutes. Thus, the BioSAXS-2000 brings a beamline experience to home laboratory SAXS experiments.
- Automatic Sample Changer (ASC) with support for 8 or 96 samples.
- Automatic Analysis Pipeline (AAP) based on ATSAS, the worlds most popular SAXS analysis software developed at EMBL Hamburg.
