Rigaku Corporation is pleased to announce its attendance at the 60th Biophysical Society Meeting Saturday, February 27, 2016 to Wednesday, March 2, 2016 in Los Angeles, CA.

Information about both small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and single crystal X-ray diffraction instrumentation products from Rigaku will be presented in Booth #828.

The BioSAXS™-2000 system is an updated version of its popular 2D Kratky system for small angle X-ray scattering of biological samples. The BioSAXS-2000 includes the new OptiSAXS optic, which captures a larger angle of the X-ray source to provide more than double the flux at the sample position enabling faster data collection with higher signal-to-noise, thereby offering a beamline experience for home laboratory SAXS experiments.

Single crystal X-ray diffraction instrumentation from the Rigaku Oxford Diffraction division will also be featured. These instruments are used to determine three-dimensional atomic structures of small molecules. The range of small molecule crystallography systems from Rigaku is designed to address the particular needs of any given lab, group or department. Through this new division, Rigaku offers complete expertise and the latest technology to meet the most vigorous small molecule crystallographic requirements.

Rigaku is pleased to contribute to the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting’s longstanding tradition of bringing together leading scientists from the all over the world who work at the interface of the life, physical, and computational sciences.
