Protein Crystallography with PILATUS (the pixeldetector series by DECTRIS)

PILATUS pixel detectors made by DECTRIS are a proven solution for the crystallography of proteins in both, biological and pharmaceutical research. HUBER minichillers® are used to define constant temperature conditions and to achieve best results. … it takes two to tango 

In order to develop new biotechnological or pharmaceutical active ingredients, researchers often study the three-dimensional structure of proteins. In order to understand the relationship between the structure and the function of proteins, researchers analyze the three-dimensional atomic structure of proteins. This allows targeted optimization of molecules in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical research.

The protein crystallography is a major method in order to determine spatial structures of proteins. This measuring method requires high resolution and high accuracy detectors as X-ray signals provided by protein crystals are pretty weak. Dectris X-ray detectors fulfill these requirements and allow the determination of the three-dimensional structure of a protein using X-rays with highest sensitivity. 

PILATUS 3R Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) detectors are specifically designed to achieve the best possible data quality in laboratory X-ray app3ications. They bring two key technologies — single-photon counting and hybrid pixel technology — from the synchrotron to the laboratory. PILATUS3 R series laboratory detectors feature DECTRIS Instant Retrigger, which enables substantially enhanced count rates and accurate count rate corrections….

PILATUS pixel detectors rely on constant temperature and this is where minichillers® do an excellent job.

Minichiller®  convince customers with good price and sustainable operation e.g. due to natural refrigerants, low power consumption, stainless stell construction a.m.m. The compact minichiller just takes a footprint of 225 x 360 but comes with 300 watts cooling capacity and ensures constant and reliable temperature control.
