02.07.2018 Multipurpose X-ray diffraction platform

Malvern Panalytical, Almelo, the Netherlands, has launched its new Empyrean platform – an instrument that is said to redefine the concept of multipurpose X-ray diffraction. Users who want to maximise the utilisation of their diffractometer or minimise time spent for training or wasted on faulty measurements, are expected to profit from this third generation of the system.

The new Empyrean is the first fully automated multipurpose X-ray diffractometer, allowing a wide variety of measurements without manual intervention. The newly developed MultiCore Optics, featuring iCore and dCore, are taking over and ensure easy automatic switching between configurations. There is no need for the instrument to pause during nights or weekends, waiting for an operator to switch optics. Instead, pre-programmed batches of samples can be measured without intervention.

All optics are now automatically recognised by the system, simplifying the exchange and eliminating errors due to wrong reporting of measurement conditions. Fabio Masiello, Malvern Panalytical’s product manager in charge of Empyrean, is very clear about the new platform’s advantages: “The simplicity and accessibility delivered by the MultiCore Optics on our new Empyrean could increase utilisation of diffractometers in the lab by around 35% and they help even inexperienced users to achieve good X-ray diffraction data. Anyone who thought that X-ray diffraction would only be for the experienced researcher can now perform advanced experiments with less chance for errors”.
