Structural Biology meets Biophysics

13-12-2016 - 16-12-2016

Recent technological advances in the fields of data acquisition and processing enable the study of individual molecules within complex environments, such as large macromolecular entities, or within a cell. The French Society of Biophysics and the Biology Discussion Group of the French Association of Crystallography join forces to promote scientific interactions among researchers whose work lies at the interface between physics and biology. The aim is to bring together students and researchers interested in the fundamental aspects of living mechanisms such as interactions between hosts and pathogens, cell compartmentalization, cell signalling or genomic integrity. Attendees will learn about the latest methods developed in the field of structural biology, molecular physics, spectroscopy and imaging.

DECTRIS proudly sponsors this event and wishes all participants an informative and interesting time.

DLS-CCP4 Workshop

13-12-2016 - 20-12-2016

We are excited to support the third joint Diamond-CCP4 workshop for macromolecular crystallography targeted at graduate students, postdocs and early career scientists. The week-long workshop will cover all aspects of structure solution, from data collection through phasing, refinement and validation. Lectures and tutorials by experts in the field will set the stage for a full day of data collection on samples provided by the participants.

Do not miss the talk of Andreas Förster on acquiring best data with HPC detectors and take the chance to discuss our latest developements with him.


03-12-2016 - 07-12-2016

The AsCA 2016 meeting will consist of two parallel satellite meetings, eighteen microsymposia, an education conference workshop on minerals and gems, crystallographic software sessions, a special section on materials and a ‘Rising Star’ session by young scientists. The scientific scope of AsCA 2016 will cover all important aspects of crystallography-related areas, including synchrotron and neutron sources, structural biology, chemical crystallography, materials and polymer science, crystal growth and crystallization, electron microscopy, informatics, and much more.

Come to our booth to meet Stefan Brandstetter and Marcus Müller to discuss your application and our latest detector development. Do not miss our lunchtime seminar on the 5th of December in room 923. Lunch boxes will be available on a first come, first served basis.


27-11-2016 - 02-12-2016

RSNA 2016 invites radiologists to think Beyond Imaging and explore new ways of collaborating. From discovering unexpected learning opportunities to broadening participation in the larger medical community, this year’s theme encourages radiologists to envision their profession beyond imaging.

DECTRIS exibits for the third time at this important event for radiologists. Join our Lunchtime Seminar on Wednesday Nov 30 at our booth #3773 in the South Hall to learn how your medical imaging application can benefit from Hybrid Photon Counting.


13-11-2016 - 15-11-2016

Since 1993, the Protein Structure Determination in Industry conference has succeeded in pulling crystallographers working in the pharmaceutical industry from their highly competitive and frequently secretive working environments to an event of open discussions, liberal exchange of ideas and learning from one another.

Do not miss the talk by our application scientists Andreas Förster and come to our booth to discuss recent breakthroughs in laboratory and synchrotron protein crystallography using EIGER detectors.


31-10-2016 - 03-11-2016

Since the AOFSRR formally started in 2006, it has been serving as a platform for collaboration and information exchange on the developments of synchrotron radiation science and technology among its members. The AOFSRR 2016 will follow this tradition by providing opportunities for participants to exchange information about the latest developments, discuss future plans for synchrotron radiation research, and broaden and strengthen the collaborations among the synchrotron radiation facilities in Asian Oceania region.

Meet Stefan Brandstetter at our booth in the exhibition area to discuss our latest detector developments for advanced synchrotron experiments.


16-10-2016 - 19-10-2016

The NOBUGS conference series aims to foster collaboration and exchange between scientists and IT professionals working on software for X-ray, neutron and muon sources around the world. Better software for data acquisition and data analysis will increase the productivity of facility users and thus maximize scientific output.

Meet our engineer Andy Mösch to learn about our software tools and data formats.

Pan African Conference on Crystallography PCCR1


The Cameroon Crystallography Association and the University of Dschang invite participation in the First Pan African Conference on Crystallography (PCCr1) from 6th to 10th October 2016 in the city of Dschang, Cameroon. The cutting edge program of this conference involves plenary sessions, keynotes of eminent crystallographers from around the world, lectures, posters sessions around seven microsymposia, and much more. Two social activities will introduce participants to the western region of Cameroon.

The conference will bring together African crystallographers, mineralogists, solid state and structural scientists with the objective to increase the awareness for crystallography and improve the educational opportunities for African researchers and students of all levels.

DECTRIS supports crystallographic education and is proud to sponsor the participation of two students at this event.


29-09-2016 - 01-10-2016

This meeting, held at a castle in 2016, brings together structural biologists from laboratories in heart of Europe region. The 2016 HEC lecture will be given by Ilme Schlichting of the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg

Meet our expert Sacha De Carlo, who attends the meeting, to discuss your applications.

Regio Meeting

28-09-2016 - 30-09-2016

The RegioMeeting is a highlight for biocrystallographic laboratories from the eastern part of France, southern Germany and Switzerland. Organized in rotation, it attracts between 80 and 120 scientists from 30 to 40 different research teams every year. The success of the meeting and the scattering of former participants into academic and industrial research labs outside the Rhine Knee region over years have expanded its influence to a broader area of Switzerland, Germany and France.

Do not miss the talk "Pushing the limits of crystallography with EIGER" of our expert Marcus Müller.
