Unlike traditional crystallographic instrumentation, which is visible and easily accessed for manual operation, the SMART X2S offers a fully automated turnkey solution for non-crystallographers," said Mr.
The SMART X2S was designed to perform a turnkey solution right out of the box.
The SMART X2S for the first time allows inorganic and organic chemists to produce atomic resolution, 3D molecular structures in their own laboratories quickly and easily at the touch of a button.
5 kW of standard single-phase AC power, the benchtop SMART X2S can be installed easily in any academic or industrial chemistry laboratory.
is looking forward to the arrival of the Bruker SMART X2S, adding significant new capability in the characterisation of the solid state structure of pharmaceutical materials.
Anita Maguire, Director of the ABCRF, highlighted the strategic opportunity presented by securing the new SMART X2S system, which will enable hands-on routine access to X-ray crystallography to a large and diverse team of researchers focused on synthetic inorganic, organic, medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry, thereby enabling them to secure structural data on their compounds much more rapidly than would be possible through a traditional service provided by a dedicated X-ray crystallographer.
Simon Lawrence, X-ray crystallography in UCC, stated that with the new SMART X2S instrument X-ray crystallography enters the hands-on analytical realm already well established in relation to NMR and LC-MS, and therefore becomes much more accessible to the wider chemical community of researchers than heretofore.
Michael Ruf, Director of Marketing for Chemical Crystallography and Development Manager for the SMART X2S stated: "Winning the R&D 100 award is a tremendous recognition for our development team.
