MYTHEN2 R 1K with its 1280 strips provides angular coverage suitable for single-shot experiments. By measuring the regions of interest, in situ studies, in line control and polymorph screening become fast and simple. For even wider angular coverage, up to four modules can be operated through a single DCS4, without compromises in speed or dynamic range.

The unsurpassed resolution of the detector is suitable for challenging structure determination studies, while its superior dynamic range and excellent sensitivity support detection of low amounts of impurities in the sample. CE-certificate of MYTHEN2 detector series comply with Good Manufacturing and Good Laboratory Practice (GMP, GLP).

MYTHEN2 R 1K detectors are multi-purpose devices, satisfying the needs of all X-ray diffraction and scattering techniques.
