BIOSAXS GmbH utilizes the expertise of the SAXS group of the EMBL Hamburg, a recognized centre of excellence in synchrotron solution X-ray scattering.

Access to the world's most brilliant synchrotron allows us complete sample characterization using 10 μl volumes and dilute concentrations (as low as 0.1 mg/ml).

Our 96-well plate reader as part of the robotic sample changer combined with the automated data analysis pipeline supports high throughput screening.

With our in-line size exclusion chromatography set-up equipped with light scattering, UV-absorption and refractometric detectors we offer a multipronged characterization of the different fractions within a sample.

Our highly competent team offers an in-depth quantitative characterization of the behaviour and structure of biological macromolecules, polymers and nanoparticles in solutions.
