Macromolecular Crystallography

The knowledge of the three-dimensional structure of organic macromolecules is important for understanding biological function. It is critical for rationalizing the effects of disease-causing mutations and for understanding the physiologies of cancer and aging on a molecular level.

Macromolecular crystallography determines the atomic structure of biological macromolecules (mostly proteins and DNA) and their complexes by diffracting X-rays through a crystal grown from the studied macromolecule. DECTRIS produces the world’s highest-quality detectors to collect data at synchrotron light sources.

Our detectors feature

  • Large detection areas
  • No dead time
  • High count-rate capabilities
  • High spatial resolution
