Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR)
Bruker’s established IVDr-by-NMR solution for phenomics research is now also being offered for biobanking applications to assess sample quality with rigorous SOPs. It can provide reliable, quantitative data on 150 metabolic biomarkers in urine in a single experiment under full automation, with high throughput and at low cost per sample.
Researchers at the Universities of Kyoto and Tokyo in Japan have developed a new method of light detection for NMR by up-converting radio-frequency signals into optical signals.
It is not unusual to find that an idea, project or business is “ahead of its time”. This might well be true of the EU 5th Framework project, Eurospec, that has been reported in these pages in the past. The idea was an excellent one: to capture the vast amount of spectral and associated data prepared for publication, and build a spectral database. Sources might be the usual scientific papers...
Bruker and their partner Diagnosticum are forming the Hungarian Wine Consortium to develop a new programme to authenticate and identify Hungarian wines.
Peak Scientific has introduced the new Infinity XE 50 Series multi-application nitrogen generator system.
The structures and functions of a transient enzyme state have been mapped for the first time using NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography.
Magritek has announced the Spinsolve 80, an 80 MHz benchtop NMR using 5 mm NMR tubes.
A liquid NMR probe for the analysis of fluorinated compounds with the ability to automatically switch between single tune and dual tune modes on the high frequency coil without compromising single tune performance. The probe can be used with routine two-channel spectrometers or with three-channel systems for expanded capabilities. Operating in single tune mode, the Royal HFX probe has the same...
The droplet size distribution in emulsions of water in oil (and oil in water) influences the taste, smell, appearance and microbial stability of foods such as margarine, butter, mayonnaise, salad dressing and soft cheese. This new analyser uses the G-Var Method for faster analysis than the previous D-Var method.
An NMR-based solution to determine the potency of drugs, including potency calculation, identification, residual solvent and water content in one experiment. It provides a fully automatic workflow enabling use by non-experts as well as experts in a pharmaceutical development environment.
Developments in hardware, higher field instruments, better multinuclear probes including cryoprobe options, spectrometer control systems and also desktop NMR data processing software have all combined to make the measurement of inorganic nuclei a potentially commonplace and very helpful, often complementary, technique to other spectroscopic analytical tools.
Salmon is one of the most popular edible fish of all. Shops sell fish caught in the wild, but their main produce is salmon from breeding farms, the effluent from which can pollute rivers, lakes and oceans. German and Chilean scientists have used fluorescence measurements, high-resolution mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to answer this question.
Lewis E. Kay is to receive a 2017 Canada Gairdner Award for his contributions to the field of biomolecular NMR spectroscopy.
Magritek launch the Spinsolve ULTRA Benchtop NMR system for measuring sub-millimolar components of neat mixtures in under 10 minutes.
numares AG and Oxford University are collaborating to develop an nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-based in vitro diagnostic (IVD) test to improve therapeutic decision making for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). This is based on research conducted at Oxford to differentiate MS patients by metabolic biomarkers using NMR spectra. numares will provide its Magnetic Group Signaling® (...
NMR spectroscopy has shown a molecule self-assembling into different forms passing from solution state to solid state and back again.
A superconducting insert coil made from a copper-oxide-based ceramic, YBCO, has raised the magnetic field achievable to 25 Tesla.
New method allows hyperpolarised xenon gas, to be dissolved into minute samples of substances without disrupting their molecular order during NMR spectroscopy.
Magritek have released new solutions that enable straightforward reaction monitoring on the Spinsolve benchtop NMR spectrometer
The protein α-synuclein plays an important role in Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. Although a considerable amount is known about the structure of the protein within the Parkinson’s-typical amyloid deposits, nothing was known about its original state in the healthy cell up to now. High-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy have...
Searching for the precise, complexly folded three-dimensional structure of a protein can be a long, intensive process with uncertain direction. A technique based on nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy offers a solution.
Oxford Instruments and Green Imaging Technologies have introduced the GeoSpec2+ NMR core analyser.
Bruker has announced five orders for ultra-high field (UHF) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy systems from Europe and Brazil in recent months. These UHF systems have been funded for cutting-edge NMR research in structural biology, intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs), membrane proteins, macro-molecular complexes and interactions, cell biology, disease research, as well as in...
Deutero have introduced a simple glass funnel suitable for 5-mm NMR tubes, and applicable for filling powder.
Magritek’s Spinsolve Benchtop NMR spectrometer is being used in the Chemistry Department of the University of Queensland as part of the undergraduate laboratory curricula.
