STOE develops, manufactures and sells scientific instruments for the non-destructive analysis of substances. Based on the X-ray diffraction (XRD) method, these systems characterize single crystals and powder samples and give answers to which substances a particular powder or crystal contains or at which positions atoms in solid bodies are exactly located. The majority of customers are institutes at universities and industrial laboratories worldwide doing research in chemistry, pharmacy, mineralogy or material science.
STOE, originally founded in 1887, to manufacture equipment for the optical analysis of crystals, has been a pioneer in powder and single crystal X-ray diffraction since the 1960’s, e.g. STOE invented and patented the transmission geometry technique for Powder XRD as well as, for single crystals, produced the first pixel detector XRD system with an open Eulerian cradle.
STOE is based in Darmstadt, Germany, and keeps the R&D, software programming, electrical and mechanical engineering and production all in house, allowing STOE to provide customers with standard as well as individual solutions. Whenever it comes to quality, STOE accepts no compromises. This high-level of detail is what sets STOE apart.
STOE is the partner in X-Ray Diffraction to crystallographers, chemists, material scientists and pharmacists all over the world.
TRADITION OF INNOVATION
STOE, originally founded in 1887, to manufacture equipment for the optical analysis of crystals, has been a pioneer in X-ray diffraction since the 1960’s:
1968 > STOE manufactured the STADI4, one of the first computer controlled 4-circle diffractometers
1979 >STOE invented and patented the transmission geometry technique for Powder XRD
1992 >STOE produced its first area detector system, the IPDS (Imaging Plate Diffraction System)
2009 >STOE produces the STADIVARI, the first pixel detector system with an open Eulerian cradle
FREEDOM TO DESIGN
YOUR BEST SOLUTION
STOE has always been a customer-focused, fully independent medium sized company. We do our design and production for both the software and hardware in-house, so that we are able to provide you with standard as well as custom solutions.
Our sole focus is to achieve the best data quality for your specific XRD needs. We have no limits in implementing the best available components, whenever it comes to quality, we accept no compromises.
We are your partner in X-Ray Diffraction and aim to extend the boundaries of research with you.
MADE IN GERMANY
German engineering has a well-earned reputation as some of the best in the world. The craftsmanship and the quality of the engineering by STOE combine to achieve unparalleled precision and product performance.
STOE keeps the R&D, software programming, electrical and mechanical engineering and production all in house. This ensures that every system that is built achieves the best in product quality and precision – 100% quality control. This high-level of detail is one of the many things that sets STOE apart.
PARTS & LABOR GUARANTEE
