XtalPi has developed a highly automated MicroED crystal structure analysis platform, which is capable of achieving high-precision crystal structure determination in as little as one day. This innovative platform eliminates the need for single crystal cultivation and only requires a small amount (several milligrams) of powder sample. To date, we have successfully completed crystal structure determination on over 100 small-molecule drugs.
The electron microscope laboratory at XtalPi spans an area of 1,600 sq ft. It is equipped with cutting-edge instrumentation such as a ThermoFisher Scientific Glacios 200 kV Cryo-Transmission Electron Microscope, a Ceta-D camera, Falcon 4 Direct Detection Camera, and a Vitrobot Mark IV System for specimen preparation. Additionally, our solid state laboratory is equipped with the latest instrumentation for structure determination and characterization.
