First Sales of Compact Benchtop NMR System Announced

Jul 01 2013

Magritek introduced the Spinsolve™ compact NMR spectrometer at Pittcon 2013. This benchtop instrument brings fast, high-resolution NMR spectroscopy to the chemistry bench and the chemistry classroom. Initial sales have been made to university groups and companies in Australia, Europe and the USA.

The speed, resolution, and ease of use of Spinsolve™ compact NMR spectrometer ushers a new experience to NMR spectroscopy. Superb spectra are available in seconds. The Spinsolve™ NMR spectrometer uses standard 5mm NMR tubes, enabling quick sample loading and unloading. It is worth noting that the spectrometer does not require any cryo cooling. This is very important in an educational context as most high-field NMR spectrometers require liquid He/N2 cooling.

The School of Chemistry of the University of Melbourne in Australia has invested in a Spinsolve™ system for their undergraduate teaching program. Dr Paul Donnelly, a senior lecturer in inorganic chemistry in the Bio21 Molecular Science and Biotechnology Institute has integrated the Spinsolve™ into the Advanced Practical Course in Chemistry. These feelings about the system are well summarised in the comments of Senior Technical Officer in charge of the course, Sioe See Volaric: " The NMR is used by students in the characterisation of the organic compounds they synthesise in the laboratory. The students have developed skills in sample preparation, choice of deuterated solvents to be used, an appreciation of what a good NMR spectrum should look like, how to tell apart solvent peaks from analyte peaks and how to integrate signals using the Mestrelab Mnova NMR software that came with Spinsolve.™"

The Spinsolve™ compact NMR spectrometer is controlled by easy-to-use software that runs on a separate PC. It has been designed to enable users to operate the system with very little training. The system uses a fast automatic lock, giving the user the choice of whether or not to use deuterated solvents. Once the spectrum is acquired it can be viewed immediately, printed, or quickly sent via email or network to another location for further analysis. The data is easily opened in third party NMR software.
