At the 2012 triennial International Small-Angle Scattering Conference ( http://sas2012.com), Bruker launches the METALJET, a novel and extremely bright microfocus X-ray source for structural biology applications. The unique METALJET is now offered exclusively by Bruker as a source option for D8 VENTURE TM protein crystallography systems and for NANOSTAR TM Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) systems.
Dr. Vernon Smith, Business Development Manager for Structural Biology at Bruker AXS, stated: “Adding the METALJET to our D8 VENTURE and NANOSTAR systems tremendously strengthens our position in the high-end structural biology market. Our customers need cutting-edge tools for their demanding research projects. Introducing the best-performing X-ray source for the home lab underlines our commitment to meet our customers’ demands and to be at the forefront of technology.”Professor Tim Salditt of the University of Goettingen, Germany, added: “I was the first customer of a METALJET X-ray source back in 2009, and I must say that in addition to the obvious benefits of the extreme brightness of the source I am very impressed with the stability, reliability and ease of use of the technology.” About Bruker Corporation Bruker is a leading provider of high-performance scientific instruments and solutions for molecular and materials research, as well as for industrial and applied analysis.
