Our goal

NatX-ray is dedicated to helping speed up and improve sample analysis. Our goal is to provide researchers and industrials with the latest high throughput, highly automated techniques with the equipments that implement them, as well as the related consumables.

Our activity

NatX-ray design and builds in its premises automated integrated robot-based systems for sample analysis with X-ray, neutron or electron beams with functionnalities that range from sample transfert, sample positioning in the beam for analysis, detector postioning, etc... (G-Rob 1D/1DT/2D/...), as well as equipments for beam conditioning and sample environment (see here).

NatX-ray also provides bench-top equipments such as microscopes, microspectrometer, etc., and all the related consumables you need.

Our partners

NatX-ray project originated in the high technological developments realized by an IBS team from the CEA and the CNRS in charge of the FIP beamline at the ESRF.

The CrystalQuick™ X in situ crystallization plate is a co-development between CEA, CNRS and Greiner Bio-One.
NatX-ray also distributes the MiTeGen, Jena Bioscience, Torrey Pines Scientific, Taylor-Wharton and the Crystal Positioning System products worldwide.

A G-Rob sample changer for ALS

Our next G-Rob system: a last generation sample changer for the Gemini beamline at the ALS. This fast and flexible system will tranfer samples mounted on ALS and Unipuck holder, from a large storage Dewar to the two stations of the beamline.

Our last G-Rob system

A very special robotized system, delivered at the IBS, Grenoble, to operate in a glove box: a fully automated system for the screening of crystalization plates in ozygen-free conditions !!!
