About the course

This course is designed for experienced users of the Bruker D8 QUEST or D8 VENTURE systems for X-ray crystal structure determination (chemical crystallography). The course includes instruction and lab time. The training is in English, so participants should have strong English skills.

Attendance Fee

The course fee is $1,320 USD per person. 

Class Size

Because our courses are interactive and learner-oriented, we limit class size to a minimum of three and a maximum of six. Early enrollment is encouraged as registrations are accepted on a first-come/first-serve basis.

**Each participant will be provided with class materials and lunch daily. While we have computers on-site, it is recommended that each participant bring a laptop. It is highly recommended to fly into Madison (MSN) on Sunday afternoon/evening and fly out Wednesday to be able to attend the full course.

This course runs 9am-5pm, Monday & Tuesday and covers the following:

  • Discussion of data collection techniques and strategies for difficult problems
  • Small or weakly diffracting samples
  • Unstable or air-sensitive samples
  • Twinned crystals
  • Hands-on use of a Bruker single crystal diffraction system with low-temperature device
