  • Description

    a program for analysis of SAXS data that enables creation of 1D scattering profiles from 2D detector images, standard data operations such as averaging and subtraction, analysis of radius of gyration (Rg) and molecular weight, and advanced processing using GNOM, DAMMIF, and AMBIMETER. It also allows easy processing of inline SEC-SAXS data.
