The marble is a versatile experimental table and radiation enclosure. The default configuration comes with a size of 1800 x 1000 x 750 mm (L x W x H) and a polished steel surface on a light honeycomb structure. Other configurations with steel plates and holes in grids are available. Essentially, it can be fully configured to fit your needs, in terms of size and materials. The table can accomodate the X-ray sources like the sealed-tube systems from Xenocs and Incoatec, but also rotating anode generators and the MetalJet source by Excillum. Dual port configurations are also available. The radiation enclosure comes with 8 doors in total, made out of fully translucent plexiglass or slightly opaque PVC. The PVC doors offer better protection against scattered radiation. However, the radiation enclosure is not designed to provide full X-ray shielding. Instead, all doors have magnetic contacts and the electronical system is designed so it gives an electrical signal to the X-ray source if any of the doors is open in order to immediately close the shutter and thus provide safety protection.
The marxps crystallization plate scanner is a brand-new addition to our legendary mardtb goniostat system. Essentially, it is a translation stage for widely used crystallization plates, with horizontal and vertical movements controlled by the mardtb electronics. It allows for quick and easy screening of your crystallization trials and saves you from the pain and risk of taking crystals out of their trays.
The marxps is a modular component of our mardtb goniostat. It can be added to existing mardtb goniostats or it can be purchased together with a new mardtb. As such, it can be combined with any X-ray source from Mo sealed tubes to latest synchrotrons and takes advantage of the unique features of the mardtb system like the automatic beam search and optimization.
The marxps is fully integrated into the electronics control system of the mardtb and does not require addtional electronical components.
The marxps can be used with any supported X-ray detector: the mar345 image plate, the EIGER and PILATUS3 detectors by DECTRIS and the SX-165/MX-225 CCD-detectors by Rayonix. Support for other detectors available on request.
Normal and low profile plates:
The system currently supports 96-well plates with 1 to 4 drops per well (e.g. Greiner and Swissci). Adapters for other types of plates available on request.
The crystal camera of the mardtb is focussed at the position of the drops of the crystallization plate. The video stream is available to the controlling computer.
Point & click centering:
The crystal in the drop can easily be centered from the software by point-and-click using the computer mouse.
The mardtb software comes with full support of the marxps component to make plate screening really easy. The software allows for automatic data collection of prescreened drops as well as fully automatic screening using a defined grid. The crystal camera is used to shoot photos from the drops used for data collection so there is a perfect feedback about the success of your crystallization work.
Naturally, also the functions of the marxps system are supported by the brand-new mardtb app available for Android Please look at the mardtb app page for more details.
The marxps system offers a very affordable possibilty to further enhance your mardtb goniostat system. Please ask for a quotation!
Take your crystallization plate and just insert it into the holding area. No screws or tools involved - just slide it in! The flexible steel bracket safely holds the tray in the appropiate place.
Fast horizontal and vertical translations:
The horizontal and vertical movements are implemented with stepper motors with a resolution of about 1 micron/step and speeds of about 2.5 mm/sec. Moving from well to well is done in 2-3 seconds.
Automatic data collection:
Data collection is carried in multiple ways. You may want to visually screen the plate first and select a series of drops to be used for actually collect data. Or you can be lazy and just make an automatic data collection based on a definable grid. Or you can just stay at the experiment and do exposures drop by drop. Whatever suits you best...
