Thermo Scientific picoSpin 45 Spectrometer Brings the Power of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy to More Laboratories
Beaulieu Lausanne – Labotec 2013 – (May 15-16, 2013) – Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced that it will feature its Thermo Scientific picoSpin 45 nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer during Labotec 2013. The first fully-featured Thermo Fisher benchtop NMR instrument, the picoSpin 45 spectrometer makes the analytical power of NMR technology available to laboratories that might previously have been limited by the cost, size and complexity of traditional NMR instruments. Thermo Fisher will showcase the new instrument within booth B13 during Labotec 2013, being held in Lausanne from May 15-16, 2013.
“At Thermo Fisher, we’re committed to making advanced laboratory instruments available to as many scientists as possible,” said Simon Nunn, global marketing director for Molecular Spectroscopy at Thermo Fisher. “The picoSpin 45 spectrometer is 100 times smaller and 10 times less expensive than any previous NMR spectrometer, bringing the power of NMR to the benchtop where more scientists can benefit from its capabilities.”
Several important innovations make the picoSpin 45 spectrometer easy to operate, allowing even novice users access to the power of NMR. The fluid capillary system allows liquid samples to be injected, eliminating the need for NMR tubes or other consumables. Additionally, the instrument uses a temperature-controlled magnet that does not require liquid cryogens, reducing maintenance and operating costs.
Thermo Fisher designed the picoSpin 45 spectrometer to occupy a fraction of the space of a traditional NMR spectrometer at less expense, making the instrument especially viable for small laboratories, classrooms and manufacturing facilities. Weighing less than five kilograms, the picoSpin 45 spectrometer is also easily shared across multiple laboratories.
Visitors of Labotec 2013 can experience the picoSpin 45 in daily live demos on the Thermo Scientific booth B13 at 10 a.m., 11.30 p.m. and 3 p.m. For more information about the Thermo Scientific picoSpin 45 spectrometer, please visit thermoscientific.com/picospin.
