The X-ray Center at The University of Akron is a state of the art facility capable of collecting high qulity X-ray diffraction data on both small molecule and macromolecular crystalline samples. Instrumentation includes a Bruker SMART Apex equipped with a 2 kW sealed tube Mo radiation source and graphite monochromator (installed 2001) and a Bruker ApexII Duo with comounted Mo and Cu microfocus radiation sources (installed June 2010).
What do we Provide?
- Data Collection, Processing and Analysis, including Graphical presentations of data collected.
- Data collection at 293K to 100K
- Collecting, and mounting of water, temperature, air, and light sensitive crystals
