We propose a technique for the refinement of unit cell parameters (UCPs) using a single crystal diffractometer equipped with a flat-panel area detector. The technique is based on choosing Kα1 components of X-ray radiation when processing diffraction reflections. The capabilities of the technique are demonstrated on [NiEn3]MoO4 single crystals. In two independent experiments, the difference between 2θexp and 2θcalc did not exceed 0.02° while the reproducibility of unit cell parameters was at least 0.008 Å.
