The operation of the SMART X2S
is completely automated from sample mounting to report generation and data archiving.
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 small footprint and low operating cost of the SMART X2S has made in-house research quality X-ray crystallography a reality for Fort Lewis College.
Professor Glen Miller, an organic chemist at the Department of Chemistry of the University of New Hampshire, stated: "We are thrilled to have a SMART X2S system in our lab.
The Smart X2S allows inorganic and organic chemists to produce atomic resolution, 3-D structures of routine samples in their own laboratories quickly and easily.
5 kW of standard single-phase AC power, the benchtop Smart X2S can be installed easily in any academic or industrial chemistry laboratory.
The Smart X2S system allows chemists to do routine, publication-quality crystal structures in only a few hours without specialized crystallography expertise.
Bruker AXS today announced that its SMART X2S automated chemical X-ray crystallography system has been awarded a R&D 100 award, recognizing it as one of the 100 most technologically significant products introduced in the past year.
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.
Revolutionary SMART X2S
(Crystal-to-Structure), the world's first benchtop X-Ray crystallography system for fully automated 3D structure determination by chemists,
Professor Arnold Rheingold of the University of California at San Diego's Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, commented: "The Bruker SMART X2S
is very exciting.
