X-Ray crystallography is the definitive method for structural determination on a molecular level, which sheds light on the properties of the chemical or biological sample being measured. Based on the phenomenon of light diffraction, in conjunction with the principle of Bragg's Law, a diffraction pattern can be produced when a single crystal sample is subjected to irradiation by an X-ray beam. A collection of such patterns can then be transformed into an electron density map by sophisticated mathematics, which in turn allows for the molecular structure to be calculated. The equipments at our disposal allow us to perform high-level crystallographic analysis on both chemical (organic, inorganic, organometallic, chiral materials, natural products, etc.) and biological protein samples.
