Since January 2008 the department of Structure Biology at the CAU Kiel has been working with the Incoatec Microfocus Source IµS-Cu. Prof. Axel Scheidig and his group use the high-performance combination of Incoatec Microfocus Source IµS and mardtb (Marresearch GmbH) for protein screening.
"Apart from the superior data quality, it was the prospect of air cooling and low-maintenance which were our main reasons for purchasing the Incoatec Microfocus Source IµS. We have been using the Incoatec Microfocus Source for a year now, and can confirm that it absolutely meets up to our expectations. As well as being able to screen the protein crystals in preparation for measurements at the synchrotron, we can also collect entire data sets, which we have released in most recent publications. During this one year the Incoatec Microfocus Source has been working free from defects and without significant loss in intensity." (February 2009)
Since February 2008 the Biozentrum of the University of Basel has been working with the Incoatec Microfocus Source IµS-Cu. Prof. Tilman Schirmer and his group at the Biozentrum use the high-performance combination of Incoatec Microfocus Source IµS and mardtb (Marresearch GmbH) for protein screening.
|"For one year now our IµS has been in use regularly for screening |
purposes, without us worrying about the X-ray source. The small
protein crystals which are sensitive to X-rays are characterized
under excellent conditions. This enables us to be much effective in
choosing the correct sample for data collection at the synchrotron.
In addition to that we use the IµS successfully for routine data
collection. The IµS completely meets our expectations." (February
