Benchtop small molecule structure determination
The Rigaku XtaLAB mini, benchtop X-ray crystallography system, is a compact single crystal X-ray diffractometer designed to produce publication-quality 3D structures. The perfect addition to any synthetic chemistry laboratory, the XtaLAB mini will enhance research productivity by offering affordable structure analysis capability without the necessity of relying on a departmental facility. With the XtaLAB mini, you no longer have to wait in line to determine your structures. Instead your research group can rapidly analyze new compounds as they are synthesized in the lab.
Teach diffraction through hands-on experience
In many universities, the departmental X-ray diffractometer is considered off limits to students because of fear that the instrument might be damaged by inexperienced users. The XtaLAB mini provides the opportunity for students to learn single crystal analysis by actually using a diffractometer. This is not a black box instrument. Rather, the important step of mounting a crystal on the goniometer and physically centering the crystal in the position of the X-ray beam, ensures that students learn the importance of mounting techniques and crystal selection. The simple design of the XtaLAB mini minimizes the danger of students damaging the system.
Reduced size does not mean reduced data quality
The Rigaku XtaLAB mini is a research grade chemical crystallography instrument that sits on the benchtop. No data quality compromises, no extended collection times. Results delivered are unambiguous. X-ray tube lifetime is extended by running at 600 W. To compensate for running at a lower power, a SHINE optic (special curved monochromator) is utilized to produce usable X-ray flux comparable to a standard X-ray system.
Dedicated to producing publication quality structures
The chief design requirement when creating the XtaLAB mini was that the structures produced would be publishable in the most demanding scientific journals. The CCD detector is positioned so that the maximum 2θ value is well outside of the Acta Cryst. requirements. The software provides all the tools you need to generate publication quality data that can be used to determine 3D structures from a variety of structure analysis packages.
