Analytical instruments for education and academic research

Our advanced X‑ray analytical instrumentation includes X-ray diffraction (XRD), X‑ray fluorescence (XRF), X-ray imaging technologies, and detectors and optics for synchrotron beamlines. These instruments play a crucial role in materials and life science, allowing researchers to analyze crystal structures, perform elemental analysis, and investigate atomic to micron scale materials characteristics. We also collaborate with academic institutions, providing training, essential X‑ray components, and advanced analytical technologies.

(This page addresses research using synchrotron beamlines, specialized components, and analytical instruments used for education. Please refer to the individual industries pages for various research areas, such as materials science, biotechnology, etc.)
