Rigaku 007-HF Diffractometer AKA Dot

In honour of Dorothy Hodgkin, our new Rigaku 007 HF (High Flux) diffractometer was named Dot. This copper rotating anode, equipped with a Saturn 944+ enhanced sensitivity detector, is a very popular solution for macromolecular crystallography, but also provides numerous advantages over the traditional Mo-based systems for chemical crystallographers. 

Data is routinely collected at 100K through the use of an Oxford Cryosystems 700 Series CryoStream. Furthermore the beam divergence setting can be customised to suit a wide range of unit cell sizes.
