Rigaku Corporation is pleased to announce its attendance at the 62nd annual American Crystallographic Association (ACA) meeting running from July 28 through August 1 at the Westin Waterfront Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. Rigaku will be exhibiting its advanced lines of single crystal X-ray diffraction, automated crystallization, and general purpose X-ray diffraction instrumentation at Booth #315.

Scientific and poster sessions, workshops and events will be presented in conjunction with the largest crystallographic exhibit show in North America. Throughout the exhibition, Rigaku will be hosting demonstrations for their new X-ray diffraction and X-ray scattering technologies as well as their new High Res UV imaging system.

On display in the 400 square foot island exhibit will be automation systems (Alchemist DT - benchtop liquid handling system, Minstrel™ DT UV - desktop automated UV-fluorescence crystal imaging system), small molecule systems (XtaLAB mini™ - benchtop chemical crystallography system), protein crystallography systems (Compact HomeLab™ microfocus sealed-tube X-ray crystallography system, BioSAXS-1000 small angle X-ray scattering /SAXS Kratky camera system), and the PlateMate plate adapter for in-situ X-ray screening.

In addition to the announced products to be featured, Rigaku will also be debuting three new products to add it its portfolio of X-ray diffraction and X-ray scattering solutions. In conjunction with the exhibit and festivities, will be hosting a number of events and Rigaku scientists will deliver five crystallography presentations at the ACA conference, discussing applications and describing new hardware and software available from Rigaku:
