Concept Welcomes Empyrean X-Ray Diffractometer

Concept Life Sciences is excited to strengthen its analytical service provision by welcoming a new 3rd generation Empyrean X-Ray diffractometer (Malvern Panalytical). The acquisition of the Empyrean instrument broadens the portfolio of services available to our clients and further deepens the partnership between the Spectris sister companies, Malvern Panalytical and Concept Life Sciences.

In addition to conventional powder XRD using reflectance geometries under ambient conditions, the Empyrean offers the latest 3D detector technology, state of the art environmental control, multiple sample geometries, and automated high throughput capability, including analysis of well plates.

Working with customers, our experienced team will work to transition new and existing methods to the new instrument including a large number of client specific validated or verified XRD methods; such methods encompass simple qualitative pattern matching, though phase ID via peak position matches, up to fully quantitative methods for multiple solid phases in complex mixtures. In-house methodologies including those supporting salt and polymorphs screens and crystallinity / amorphicity assessments will also be optimised and transferred to the new instrument.

The new instrument will provide the capability to streamline various “screens” to adopt a high throughput approach, providing improvements in efficiency and response times, as well as capacity.
