The X-ray Center at The University of Akron is a state of the art facility capable of collecting high quality X-ray diffraction data on both small molecule and macromolecular crystalline samples. Our instrument is a Bruker Apex II Duo system with co-mounted Mo and Cu microfocus radiation sources..
What do we Provide?
- Data Collection, processing and analysis, including graphical presentations of structures.
- Data collection at 293K to 100K
- Collecting, and mounting of water, temperature, air, and light sensitive crystals
- Consultation for the best approaches of generating good diffraction crystals for data collection
Recrystallization for optimal data analysis
Hours of Operation:
Monday through Fridays
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM,
Meetings and Consultations by Appointments only
