SMALL-ANGLE SCATTERING (SAXS)

"For small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) on proteins data recording a good signal to noise ratio is a necessity.  The practical noise free recording of SAXS data with the PILATUS detectors permits reliable data analysis and more accurate shape model building, even in dilute protein solutions. This property of the detector in combination with the high dynamic range and the large active area makes the PILATUS to the detector of choice for SAXS solution scattering."
