Drug discovery

The most fundamental application of X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) is the identification or 'fingerprinting' of crystalline phases as used in the identification of new chemical entities (NCEs) during drug discovery. Crystallographically indexed XRPD patterns are directly related to the crystalline structure of a material and are of critical importance in securing a drug patent. PANalytical provides comprehensive XRPD instrument and related modular solutions.

Typical drug discovery applications focus on crystollagraphic structure refinement and the following related parameters:

  • Lattice constants
  • Displacement parameters
  • Coordinates of atoms
  • Site occupation factors
  • Preferred orientation

Accurate XRPD solutions

The Empyrean XRD platform offers the most flexibility for required geometries, supported by optimized optical components and high sensitivity, fast detectors. The HighScore Plus software suite provides all crystallography programs required to comply with the international demands for structure analysis.
