Determination of pharmaceutical compounds using an ASI Cheetah 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 […]

ASI participates at the OMA School on Medical Accelerators at CNAO

The first scientific school of the OMA Project took place at CNAO in Pavia, Italy between 4th and 9th June, gathering 75 delegates from across Europe, including all OMA Fellows and their supervisors. Along the OMA School, CNAO also hosted a school of the Medicis-Promed project, providing opportunities for networking between two major European Training […]

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 unprecedented sensitivity of the detector. This paves the way for structure determination of macromolecules […]
