The CBSE X-Ray Crystallography Center currently houses three X-Ray detector system for use with protein discovery.
The R-AXIS IV is an X-ray diffractometer using IPs (imaging plate). It is specifically designed for rapid measurement of diffracted X-rays from single crystal samples ranging from small molecule crystals to protein crystals (macromolecular crystals).
In recent years, the three-dimensional structure of biologically significant macromolecules has drawn particular attention in the development of new medicines and for the role as a biosensor, functional material and recording medium. Also, in the case of small molecules, attention is now directed to the structure of intermediates during the reaction pathway as well as to the structure of unstable materials. In order to deal with such materials, it is imperative to measure the entire diffraction pattern in a short time and with high precision.
