MicroED Service at Biortus Facilitates Drug Development
Microcrystal electron diffraction (MicroED) is a new crystal structure determination technique for small molecules. It obtains diffraction patterns of small molecule microcrystal from an electron microscope, and resolves the atomic-resolution structure (better than 1.0A) with the traditional crystallography approach. The emergence of MicroED technology has raised great interest within the pharmaceutical research and development community. This technology holds great prospects of identifying the crystal form of drug substance, determining the structure of a natural product, and analyzing impurity in CMC process.
