The nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) instrument is an ideal analytical technique for non-invasive and non-destructive quantitative investigations into molecular structure, dynamic processes, and chemical reactions. Bruker is the industry leader in manufacturing unique high-performance magnetic resonance instruments.
Incorporating Key Technologies for Best Performance and Cost Efficiency
The Ascend™ series of compact Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) magnets makes medium and high-field NMR spectroscopy extremely powerful, and at the same time reliable and convenient. Ascend magnets combine several of Bruker’s proprietary, innovative magnet technologies for superior performance and operational cost savings. The Ascend magnet design features advanced superconductor technology, enabling the design of smaller magnet coils, thus resulting in a significant reduction in physical size and magnetic stray fields. The Ascend magnets are therefore easy to site, as well as convenient and economical to operate.
Minimum Stray Fields
Ascend magnets are optimized for operation with Bruker’s room temperature shim systems, Bruker NMR probes, automation technology, and refrigeration equipment, e.g. for integrated high-performance NMR systems used in structural biology, small molecule, and/or materials research applications.
Bruker’s Ascend magnets also come in two sizes standard-bore equaling 54 mm in diameter and wide-bore which is 89 mm in diameter.
While its predecessor, the AVANCE III HD, already provided cutting-edge NMR performance, the AVANCE NEO takes this a step further. It features even faster control, improved dynamic range, and greater flexibility and scalability.
The AVANCE NEO is based on a ‘transceive’ principle, meaning each NMR channel has both transmit and receive capabilities. This architecture provides the greatest flexibility in terms of instrument configuration and multi-channel operation. Multi-receive experiments are easily implemented with this new approach.
Also new in the AVANCE NEO is the concept of an embedded acquisition server and associated client-server software architecture (TopSpin 4 and higher). This leaves the spectrometer independent of the client computer, thus giving the user the opportunity to control the system via an operating system and location of choice, like the cloud.
With the frequency range now extended from 200 MHz to 1.2 GHz, and with various functional enhancements in setup and diagnostics, the AVANCE NEO is well positioned to serve as the research platform of choice for the current and the next generation of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopists.
