SPS moves advanced SAX x-ray measuring equipment for SAXLAB

Dr. Soeren Skou, director at SAXLAB and Xenocs, chose SPS to move their some 800 kg X-ray based protein measuring equipment a couple of floors at the University of Copenhagen, Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology.

Dr. Søren Skou, director of SAXLAB and Xenocs, at the large tester for protein analyzes, moved by SPS.

The equipment is based on narrow angled X-ray diffusion, analyzes protein structures in both solid and fluid solution and without sample preparation. The equipment is used primarily among universities worldwide.

“The demands are great when an highly advanced and expensive measurement equipment like this has to be moved,” says Søren Skou. “It is an absolute requirement that during moving it remains horizontal and not subject to twists. This could be a challenge due to the fact that the machine was going to be moved down a staircase,” continues Soeren.

“I was honestly a little nervous about how it would go. But SPS solved the job perfectly, “says Soeren.

“First, we carefully examined the critical requirements of the equipment. The staff at SPS understood my points and structured the assignment thereafter. ”

“I can only give SPS my best for moving advanced equipment,” concludes Soeren Skou.


The company’s Bio-Science product line was created by Dr. Soeren Skou and since 2008, he has conducted the construction of the company’s narrow-range SAX instrumentation solutions, including the use of robot technology.

Dr. Soeren Skou, Director of Xenocs / SAXLAB, recommends SPS for relocation of advanced scientific equipment. “SPS did the job perfectly,” says Soeren Skou.

January 2017 the French company Xenocs acquired all activities in SAXLAB and Soeren Skou continued as director of Xenocs, as well as the company’s Danish department continues under the name SAXLAB.
