Mass specific surface area determined by SAXS

| Application notes, News, Type of articles | No Comments
In this Application Note, the XSACT software package is used to process the SAXS data and determine the specific surface area of SiO2 powder samples. Both the invariant and the absolute-scale methods are employed, and the results are compared with the obtained from BET measurements and analysis.

Characterization of protein intermolecular interactions

| Application notes, News, Type of articles | No Comments
SAXS was used to study the effect of pH and protein concentration on the self-interaction process of a BSA system in solution Bovine serum albumin (BSA) is a non-glycosylated globular protein found in bovines. It is widely used in drug delivery, immunodiagnostic procedures  and in clinical chemistry due to its…

Some of our customers

Customers publications in the last 5 years
X-ray scattering instruments installed since 2012

At Xenocs, we help our customers in their research, development and production of advanced materials by providing them with products and services for characterization at the nanoscale. Our solutions are based on Small and Wide Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS/WAXS).

For more information on the SAXS/WAXS technique, have a look at our SAXS webpage.

With the Application menu,  you will find plenty of information on what modern SAXS is being used for in various research domains such as polymer research, structural biology, nanoparticles &  colloids, renewable energy, food science, cosmetics & consumer care, oil & gas, as well as various inorganic materials.

The characterization pages will give you some examples of the types of measurements you can perform in the lab with X-ray scattering.

For detailed descriptions on our portfolio of SAXS/WAXS instrumentation, please refer to our product webpages.

The knowledge base menu gives you access to some application notes and a large list of customer publications involving our lab instruments.
