Rigaku Corporation is pleased to introduce the latest in a series of informational product videos. The new video highlights the features and capabilities of the Rigaku BioSAXS-2000 Small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) Kratky camera system.

Specifically designed to meet the needs of the structural biologist, Rigaku's BioSAXS-2000 SAXS camera is based on a patented two-dimensional Kratky design. The BioSAXS-2000 occupies significantly less space than a conventional 3-pinhole camera but offers better flux characteristics. Furthermore, the BioSAXS-2000 can be mounted on the open port of a Rigaku rotating anode X-ray generator, taking full advantage of existing infrastructure, or it can be mated to a Rigaku microfocus sealed tube X-ray source. The BioSAXS AUTO configuration incorporates two time-saving features: an Automatic Sample Changer for unattended overnight operation and an Automatic Analysis Pipeline based on the world standard ATSAS package from EMBL Hamburg.

The video also offers an overview of the Rigaku Hypix 3000 detector, a next-generation two-dimensional semiconductor detector and a preview of Rigaku SAXSLab software, a single package that integrates data collection, data processing and data analysis.

The video is among the most recent in a collection of product videos available on both the Rigaku company website and the Rigaku YouTube channel.
