The Bruker SMART APEX II is a top of the line single-crystal diffractometer, capable of molecular structure determination of a wide range of materials, from cryogenic to room temperatures. These include, but are not limited to, organics and biological small-molecules, metal-organic and organometallic complexes, and inorganic compounds; and both discrete and polymeric materials. Data can be collected for users, or trained users may collect their own data. The instrument was purchased in 2007.
