The XtaLAB MM003 system includes the MicroMax-003 microfocus sealed tube generator coupled to a double-bounce confocal optic and is designed for productive, low-maintenance research in your own lab. The MicroMax-003 is the perfect X-ray source for someone who wants the benefit of a microfocus X-ray source, with low power consumption and long tube life, without the added maintenance that goes with a more powerful rotating anode generator. This system occupies a small footprint, so it can be easily integrated into almost any lab space.
Optimized for small crystals
The MicroMax-003 is configured with a specially designed confocal Max-Flux® multilayer optic. This double-bounce optic provides up to 70 imes better Cu Kβ suppression compared to single bounce optics, as well as lower divergence and higher intensity. This generator and optic source combination produces a very small beam, less than 100 microns at the crystal, so that more photons are on your small crystals rather than contributing to radiation background. The result is better signal to noise from your diffraction experiments.
The default detector for the XtaLAB MM003 system is a Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) detector, such as the HyPix-6000 or PILATUS3 R 200K hybrid photon counting detector (HPC). HPC detectors are ideal for this type of source because they are photon counting detectors that directly detect X-ray photons without the need the intermediate step of converting X-ray photons to light with a phosphor and because they have extremely low noise. Additionally, HPC detectors have an ideal point spread function of a single pixel. These combined features, along with shutterless data collection, means that you can collect more accurate data faster. As a result, a XtaLAB MM003 system, coupled with a highly sensitive HPC detector, gives you a great tool for both screening and structure solution.
