About Instrument and its applications-
The Macromolecular Crystallographic Unit (MCU) at IIC, IIT Roorkee has the newly installed X-ray diffractometer Rigaku Micromax 007 HF with HyPix-6000 detector. It has the most advanced detector and provides the solution for current and future macromolecular crystallography applications. It has high precision and unique telescopic two-theta arm with 2x faster movement compared to the previous generation to get the quick data collection. It has microfocus beam for mounting small crystals. It is noise-free and does direct photon counting generating high accuracy data. It has a readout time of 3.7 ms (standard) / 0 ms (in zero dead-time mode) while the earlier machine had 1 min readout time with 1 min dead-time. The maximum frame rate is 100 fps while the earlier machine had only 3 frames per min.
