The PILATUS3 R 1M is the perfect detector for macromolecular crystallography in the laboratory. The large sensor area of 168.7 x 179.4 mm2 rivals that of image plates and eliminates all compromises when collecting complete high resolution data with well resolved spots. A readout time of 7 ms and shutterless data acquisition make it a breeze to collect high multiplicity data sets.

The PILATUS3 R 1M is an ideal choice when replacing your outdated image plate or CCD and upgrading your diffractometer to a state-of-the-art instrument.

In X-ray scattering experiments, the large area of the 1M enables simultaneous measurements of SAXS and WAXS signals.
