The PILATUS3 R 300K is the perfect detector for an in-house SAXS instrument. Benefit from the outstanding stability of the water-cooled detector that allows you to determine and subtract solvent scattering with best precision and accuracy, even for very long exposure times. Furthermore, you can exploit the optional vacuum compatibility of the detector for complete elimination of air and window scattering.
