EIGER R for Laboratory

The EIGER R series combines the renowned single-photon sensitivity of DECTRIS‘s Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) detectors with small pixels and high resolution. A pixel size of only 75 µm and a megapixel sensor turn the EIGER R 1M into a versatile yet highly affordable detector for a variety of laboratory applications. The EIGER R 4M rivals CCD and image plate detectors in size, but far outperforms them in collection efficiency, background noise, and resolving power. This makes it the ultimate detector in cutting-edge instruments for the most demanding experiments.

Take advantage of the single-pixel point-spread- function to resolve spots from protein crystals with large unit cells or to record high–resolution powder diffraction patterns from textured samples. Further improve the signal-to-noise ratio of your most challenging samples thanks to the detector’s continuous energy threshold and an image depth of 32 bit. Strongest Bragg spots from small molecule crystals are accurately measured with count rate capabilities of up to 5·108 phts/s/mm2. Unlock the potential of your laboratory instrument with state-of-the-art EIGER R laboratory detectors.
