CWI launches world-class 3d lab in collaboration with ASI
State secretary Dekker opens ‘FleX-ray Lab’ during CWI in Bedrijf
On Thursday 18 May 2017 demissionary state secretary Sander Dekker will open a new research facility that belongs to the top of the world league at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica. With the new scanner of this lab, it will be made possible for the first time to look inside objects in 3D during the scanning process and t...
Protein Crystallography goes Nano
Researchers from Switzerland, Sweden and the Netherlands recently solved the atomic structure from a single protein nano-crystal (volume: 0.14 um3) using ASI’s detector technology. This is an order of magnitude smaller than what was previously achievable and is due to the detector’s unprecedented sensitivity. It paves the way for structure determination of macromolecules using electron diffra...
Determination of pharmaceutical compounds using an ASI detector
The group from Prof. Dr. J.P. Abrahams from Leiden University published their research on the determination of organic pharmaceutical compounds using a Timepix quantum area detector developed by ASI. This study has been noted in the research news of International Union of Crystallography on the 26th of February. The following message is adapted from their news item:
Reliable information about the...
