Fields of expertise

Arinax is the world leading manufacturer of high precision diffractometer applied to MX crystallography, in synchrotrons. We offer a large range of equipment for structural biology, covering single crystal x-ray diffraction, SAXS/WAXS and neutron diffraction.

We also offer specific solutions for controlled crystal dehydration, both available in synchrotrons and in home laboratories.

 Now, Arinax is in the crystallization field with CrystalDirect®, the fully-automated crystal harvester dedicated to modern high throughput crystallization platforms.

A collaborative approach

For over ten years we have been working hand in hand with the instrumentation group of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), in Grenoble, to develop innovative equipment for MX crystallography, combining excellent precision, integration and automation.

Our most recent co-development is the CrystalDirect® automatic crystal harvester robot, for modern crystallization platforms.
