Marresearch has a long history of providing state-of-the-art X-ray data collection systems. In fact, “Mar” has become a synonym for high-performance X-ray detectors and goniostats, that have gained the reputation of being “best of their kind”. Far beyond technical specs, the mar345 image plate detectors and the mardtb goniostats have become a legend for their reliability. We are proud to say, that they are truly “Made in Germany”.
Current Marresearch products:
The world’s most highly acclaimed image plate detector, featuring a huge active area of 345 mm diameter, a data read-out as fast as 34 secs and an unbeatable cost/performance ratio. Popular in home labs as well as synchrotrons for protein and small molecule crystallography, powder diffraction, texture analyses and other material sciences.
The world’s first and only flatpanel TFT detector for crystallography. A Selenium layer directly converts X-ray photons into electrons yielding a magnificent point-spread. With 420 x 350 mm (555 mm diameter), the active area is larger then the largest tiled CCD detectors – but with a signifcantly smaller price tag. Data read-out time is < 2 sec and the dinamyc range 18 bits.
|High-performance single chip CCD detector for synchrotron or home laboratory. Ideal for crystallography, SAXS, X-ray diffraction, or imaging, the SX-165 features a round 165 mm diameter active area, high dynamic range and 1 sec read-out time. An optional frame-shift mode of data collection allows time-resolved studies on the order of milliseconds.|
|The world’s leading large-area CCD X-ray detector for protein crystallography. Only the MX Series detectors offer seamlessly tiled arrays of fiber-optic coupled CCDs, with no inactive strips between them. Deep cooling, fast readout, low noise, and high sensitivity. Three configurations are available: 225, 300, and 325 mm square. Now HE (High Efficiency) versions also available!|
The most advanced goniostat for computer-controlled data collection. A unique feature is its capability of aligning itself to the X-ray beam - just a single mouse click is enough!
|The easymount goniostat is an extended version of the mardtb "desktop beamline" featuring an automatic mount and retrieval mechanism for both comfortable and safe sample handling under cryogenic conditions. This is a very nice tool, in particular for high-throughput crystal screening.|
|A compact, robust and rather inexpensive automated sample mounting, retrieval and storage system for the mardtb "desktop beamline". The instrument allows unattended data collection of 19 samples. An integrated bar-code reader keeps your crystals organized.|
|Complete Data Collection Systems|
Take a state-of-the-art micro-beam sealed tube generator with a specially designed high-performance optics, add a mardtb "desktop beamline" and a mar345 image plate detector to it plus a cryo-cooler, put it into a shiny cabinet and you are getting a truly powerful yet very affordable complete X-ray data collection system - just perfect for macro-molecular crystallography.
An X-ray video camera with automatic contrast adjustment. Comes complete with adapters and a range of tubes to be fitted to all sorts of X-ray optics from plain graphite monochromators to high-performance multi-layers. Optics alignment has never been easier!
A revolutionary program package for processing single crystal diffraction data from proteins and small molecules. It comprises a full-featured GUI that supports all programs of the automar-suite. In addition, the integration and scaling programs of the CCP4-suite (ipmosflm), the XDS-suite and the HKL(R)-suite are supported. Data processing has never been more straightforward.
