Industrial X-ray diffraction application course on CubiX³ or X’Pert³ powder (X’Pert PRO MPD) diffractometers

25 November 2016  The course is intended for the users from various industries, where XRD is applied for the production control. Basics of X-ray diffraction technique and practical aspects of work on CubiX³ or X’Pert³ Powder (X’Pert PRO MPD) diffractometers equipped with X’Pert Industry software will be covered during this course. The main accent will be made on the optimization of the data collection and quantitative analysis using X’Pert Industry software to solve specific industrial problems in the most effective way.

Milk powder mineral content using X-ray fluorescence spectrometry

30 January 2015  Milk powder quality and nutritional value depends significantly on its mineral and salt content. Elemental analytical techniques such as X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) are valuable in determining the composition of a wide range of organic and inorganic materials which can be analyzed as solids, liquids, loose and pressed powders. In this webinar we present energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) as a rapid, non-destructive tool to quantitatively analyze mineral and salt content including sodium and magnesium in milk powder prepared as pressed powders.

Best practices - Fitting of X-ray reflectivity data with X’Pert Reflectivity

28 September 2017  This webinar will focus on the X-ray reflectivity (XRR) data analyzation. We will start with a brief discussion on how to judge the quality of the experimental data. Then simulating and fitting on XRR data will be shown in a step-by-step manner, from a simple 2 layers system fitting move towards a more complicated case. Different fitting strategy and practices that help to speeding up the fitting process will also be discussed. A live Q & A will conclude the presentation.

An introduction to the bio-SAXS technique and its application on a versatile laboratory X-ray scattering platform
An introduction to the bio-SAXS technique and its application on a versatile laboratory X-ray scattering platform

08 August 2017  Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) applied to dilute protein solutions has become an accepted structural biology technique. In situ measurements provide information e.g. about protein size and shape, folding/unfolding, aggregation, stability and molecular weight. In this webinar we will give a basic introduction to the bio-SAXS technique, present Malvern Panalytical's SAXS instrumentaion (Empyrean Nano edition), and demonstrate its performance on a variety of protein samples.
