ACCEL Instruments GmbH specializes in scientific instumentation in the
fields of accelerators and magnet systems. Besides our large involvement
superconducting and normal-conducting accelerator components, we are
building beamlines and beamline components for synchrotron facilities.
We design, manufacture, install, and commission beamlines as turn-key systems
(e.g., for protein crystallography). We have our own designs for double-crystal
and double-multilayer monochromators, mirror systems, slit systems, and
all sorts of beam monitors and all other beamline components. In addition,
we develop single components based on customer specification or built to
print with our design office and our in-house workshops.

BRUKER AXS Inc. supplies a comprehensive line of analytical x-ray instruments
for use in home laboratories and at synchrotron sources. Our main products
are goniometers and CCD detectors for x-ray diffraction and scattering
experiments and associated software. With over 400 installations world
wide, Bruker has more experience than any other company in the manufacture
and installation of these systems. Bruker offers several types of CCD detectors
from the extremely sensitive 61 mm square APEX to the innovative and award
winning 300 mm diameter lens-coupled PROTEUM 300. Three-circle and Kappa
goniometers can be used with these detectors. Alternatively, they can be
fitted to an existing goniometer or used as stand-alone units (e.g., for
SAXS). Software for single-crystal, powder diffraction, SAXS, thin films,
polymer diffraction, and pole figures is available. Bruker AXS and Nonius
of Delft, Netherlands, have recently formed a new Bruker AXS business unit
named Bruker Nonius; this enhances our single-crystal products in particular.
Service and training are available for all major products.
