Accessible, Affordable and Award-Winning Benchtop NMR Spectrometer

publication date: Jun 26, 2012
author/source: Cole-Parmer

picoSpin-45 Benchtop NMR Spectromete


This month, the world's first miniature NMR spectrometer received the R&D 100 Winning Technology Award for Analytical Instruments from R&D Magazine. This powerful spectrometer allows you to run an NMR analysis in any laboratory without the need for special environmental conditions.

The picoSpinTM-45 Benchtop NMR Spectrometer has already won an Edison Award for Best New Product and was a finalist in the European Life Science Award for Most Innovative New Product.

The picoSpin-45 resolves proton chemical shifts with a resolution of 60 ppb or better and needs only 20 microliters of sample fluid to obtain a spectrum.  Its compact size and portability, weighing under 5 kg, as well as the fact that it has no environmental or facility requirements, makes it a desirable unit for lab researchers with limited benchtop space. Because of the unit's affordable price, now chemistry students have access to critical hands-on NMR experience in their academic curriculum.  Currently, academia relies primarily on paper NMR spectra data for teaching. Now, with an affordable option, students can gain real-time experience. "As a biochemistry teacher, I want my students to get practical experience on NMR spectroscopy. This instrument and its software seem to be very useful for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. We appreciate the initiative taken by Cole-Parmer for [the]educational cause. With this instrument, students can now experience NMR hands-on in chemistry lab courses and in research projects," said Dr. Sangita Roy, HOD, Department of BioChemistry, Oxford College of Science, India.

Not limited just to education, the picoSpinTM-45 Benchtop NMR Spectrometer is also suitable for routine analysis to determine chemical composition, for process control, or for detecting impurities in mixtures.  Applications include reaction monitoring, polymer chemistry, forensics, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, process control, QA/QC, and more.
