X-Ray Crystallography Core (California) Core Laboratory uri icon

The X-Ray Facility at Scripps Research is a single crystal X-Ray structure determination facility for small inorganic or organic molecules.  It serves the Scripps investigators along with pharmaceutical and biotech companies around the San Diego area.


  • The Chemistry department of the Institute has an X-ray Facility which maintains two X-ray diffractometers, Bruker-APEX CCD Diffractometer equipped with a molybdenum tube, and Rigaku AFC6S with a copper tube. The X-ray data can be collected at room temperature as well as low temperature. The students can submit crystals of small organic or inorganic molecules for X-ray Structure determination. Outsiders can also get structure determination done here. Since this is a TSRI recharge facility, the outsiders have to pay a surcharge.
