The X-ray Crystallography platform at the Department of Chemistry, Umeå University, offers expertise in crystallography and access to advanced instrumentation and consumables.
The X-ray Crystallography Platform provides crystallographic expertise and access to state of the art equipment for crystal set-ups and data collection.
Single crystal X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) provides 3D structural information at atomic resolution of small molecules as well as macro-molecules such as proteins, DNA, RNA, and their complexes. XRD is ideally suited for drug target screening (“High Throughput Screening”) and "Fragment Based Drug Discovery" by determining the structure of proteins with bound drug candidates. In addition, the X-ray equipment can be used for powder and fibre diffraction.
