X-rays are an essential tool in biomedical research and for industrial applications, but they tend to damage the samples under investigation. To detect of every single X-ray quantum, DECTRIS has developed Hybrid Photon Counting technology, which has become the leading technology for the detection of X-ray photons. We strive to develop and build the fastest, most sensitive detector systems to enable our customers to achieve the best possible results in research and testing.
The broad range of our products, both strip and area detectors, can be scaled to meet the needs of a broad range of applications. We also provide custom solutions for scientific and industrial X-ray detection. The superior quality of our detectors has helped transform basic research at synchrotron light sources and research laboratories, and has enabled innovative industrial X-ray applications.
DECTRIS was founded in 2006 and awarded the 2010 Swiss Economic Award in the High-Tech Biotech category, the most prestigious prize for start-up companies in Switzerland. We are an active part of the scientific community and present the latest advances in data collection, methodology and innovative applications at scientific conferences, training courses and trade fairs
DECTRIS manufactures Hybrid Photon Counting X-ray detectors for synchrotron beamlines, research laboratories and industrial applications. Our product portfolio comprises strip and area detectors, from single-module instruments to large, complex systems. Our modern production facilities allow for efficient and fast manufacturing to the highest standards.
We have a long history of providing custom solutions based on our standard products. Whether it is a specific geometry, an in-vacuum setup, hardware customization, or adapted calibrations, contact our Specific Solutions department if you have something unusual in mind. We will find a solution for you.
You can also benefit from our extensive resources for ASIC and electronics design as well as in-house firm- and software development to have an HPC detector built entirely to your specifications. Whether it’s for one instrument or a run of one hundred, we love challenges – if you can think of it, we can probably build it.
DECTRIS works directly with the world’s leading synchrotrons to meet their X-ray detection needs. In addition, supply Hybrid Photon Counting detectors for integration into academic and industrial research infrastructure where we work with leaders in instrumentation like Rigaku Oxford Diffraction, STOE, Xenocs, SAXSLAB, Bruker and marXperts. Outside the academic world, we are OEM partners for companies like Proto, Anton Paar, Shimadzu, GNR and xplorex, helping their instruments reach their full potential. We also work with you directly to provide you with bespoke detector solutions.
DECTRIS Hybrid Photon Counting X-ray detectors are used at synchrotron beamlines and on laboratory diffractometers. The main applications are in biomedical research and in materials
Because of the speed and sensitivity of our detectors, measurements can be done quickly and gently, increasing throughput and efficiency while safeguarding the sample.
At DECTRIS, we take pride in the great service and support we provide for our end customers at synchrotron beamlines and research laboratories worldwide. We also provide application and technical support for our OEM partners where the detector is at the heart of X-ray diffraction instruments.
