Excellent data quality in the shortest measurement time
SAXSpoint 5.0 employs a brilliant X-ray beam with high spectral purity and scatterless beam collimation. Equipped with powerful microsource or MetalJet X-ray sources and high-performance optics, it delivers excellent results within exceptionally short exposure times. Combined with the latest hybrid photon-counting (HPC) detectors it ensures high-quality SAXS/WAXS/GISAXS/RheoSAXS results for the analysis of your nanostructured materials. Excellent resolution is reached with this brilliant setup, resolving structures up to 620 nm with the most compact system size of its class.
Obtain SAXS and WAXS data in one go
SAXSpoint 5.0 features a moving detector, Slidemaster, which enables completely automatic X-ray scattering studies over a very wide q-range. You can therefore obtain SAXS and WAXS data in one go without additional realignment of the system. Feel free to choose your optimum q-range from the highest SAXS resolution to a wide WAXS regime for every experiment by just moving the detector.
SAXSpoint 5.0 provides automatic beamstop selection and positioning for your measurement. As it integrates the latest EIGER2 R detectors windowless and beamstop-less measurements can be performed.
Simplify your daily lab routine
Automating routine tasks to accelerate the way to measurement is standard in the SAXSpoint 5.0 lab system. SAXSpoint 5.0 is equipped with Stagemaster, which automatically aligns all X-ray components and sample stages, recognizes which stage is implemented, and configures the system accordingly. This gives you the best possible result for your measurement setup. Automate your sample throughput with the ASX autosampler for liquid samples, such as dispersions and biological samples. The ASX autosampler can be equipped with up to 192 samples and has a cooling option for sensitive samples.
Choose your stages: One system for all experimental conditions
Almost any kind of nanostructured material can be analyzed with various sample stages from Anton Paar. Switching between different sample stages is easy and fast with TrueFocus, the feature that ensures automatic alignment of all components. Benefit from a unique flexibility in your measurement setup.
