Bruker D8 QUEST
Bruker AXS

The Bruker D8 QUEST is a compact SC-XRD (Single Crystal X-ray Diffraction) system. Perform single wavelength experiments with Bruker’s revolutionary PHOTON II CPAD detector, with 4th generation free-electron laser (FEL) detector technology in your own lab.

Need greater capabilities? The D8 VENTURE is a larger instrument with rotating anode and dual wavelengths.


Single source SC-XRD

Modular system

With best-in-class components

Smaller footprint

>70% of all published structures from 2015-2018

From the market leader in crystallography


The Bruker D8 QUEST is a compact solution for single wavelength experiments.  Featuring the revolutionary PHOTON III detector, it brings 4th generation free-electron laser detector technology to your lab.

As a modular system, there is a great degree of experimental flexibility from a small footprint system. While compact, samples remain visible and accessible.

The D8 QUEST is equipped with best-in-class components and options to suit your applications.  All-air-cooled configurations are available.

  • PHOTON II detector with CPAD technology
  • PHOTON III photon counting detector with mixed mode technology
  • Sealed tube X-ray sources
  • IµS 3.0 and IµS DIAMOND microfocus X-ray sources
  • Advanced, TUEV certified safety enclosure
  • FIXED-CHI or KAPPA four-axis goniometer
  • APEX4 – the most comprehensive software suite for chemical crystallography
  • PROTEUM3 – now with data processing pipeline for structural biology
