THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Dec. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The latest edition of Crystallography Times from Rigaku Corporation has been published and is now available on the company's global website.
Crystallography Times is a monthly electronic newsletter serving the X-ray analysis community, published by Rigaku Oxford Diffraction (ROD). It concentrates on single crystal X-ray diffraction and presents the latest news and crystallographic research.

The "Crystallography in the News" feature assembles current global news and developments in the fields of small molecule and protein X-ray diffraction. Each month, it highlight the latest research findings and advancements.

Featured news articles include reports about researchers from Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, using X-ray crystallography, demonstrating - on a molecular level - how a specific protein allows light signals to be converted into cellular information.

Another news item discusses how Berkeley Lab researchers, in collaboration with scientists from SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and the Max Planck Institute, have demonstrated that fluctuation X-ray scattering is capable of capturing the behavior of biological systems in unprecedented detail.

The Product Spotlight in the current issue features the Rigaku XtaLAB Synergy DW dual wavelength X-ray diffractometer with HPC X-ray detector. Combining the increased flux of a rotating anode X-ray source with the flexibility of two different wavelengths, this multi-functional single crystal X-ray diffractometer is ideal for laboratories exploring a wide range of research interests.

This month's "Lab in the Spotlight" section presents Rigaku's own application laboratory in the Rigaku Europe SE office in Neu-Isenberg, Germany. The facility consolidates all Rigaku European application labs in one easy-to-access location.

A selection of 19 recently published scientific papers, a schedule of upcoming events, a book review and two featured videos are also included. Crystallography Times is published monthly. Readers can subscribe to the newsletter or view the current issue online at
