BioSpin announces the new Fourier 300, an innovative, easy-to-use 300 MHz
high-resolution spectrometer that brings Fourier transform (FT) Nuclear Magnetic
Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy within every chemist's reach. With its robust
Fourier Probe technology, easy software, miniaturized electronics and proven
magnets, the Fourier 300 is a complete proton and carbon 1D and 2D FT-NMR system
that delivers powerful performance at an attractive price.
Bruker's industry leading NMR software TopSpin combines various new features
to explore the world of NMR at-ease, making the Fourier 300 an ideal system for
chemical education and industrial routine analysis. It enables undergraduate NMR
laboratories to incorporate many new experiments, from a broad range of
pre-installed 1D FT-NMR spectra and various relaxation experiments to numerous,
information-rich 2D homonuclear or heteronuclear correlations. Students will
find the TopSpin software intuitive, whether it is used to analyze the structure
of an organic molecule, or to learn NMR as a method.
The Fourier 300 is also a compact, cost-effective FT-NMR instrument for
routine, walk-up, small molecule analysis in the pharmaceutical and chemical
industries, whether to qualify materials, verify reactions, or verify organic
molecule structures without being dependent on larger, centralized NMR
laboratories. Companies with limited budgets will now be able to add powerful
FT-NMR capabilities. Optional software packages can expand the use of the
Fourier 300 to include structure elucidation, structure consistency checks,
analysis of mixtures and absolute quantification experiments.
Designed and built by the world's NMR market leader, the Fourier 300 utilizes
advanced digital RF architecture that results in a uniquely compact, double
resonant instrument featuring a digital lock. The Fourier's innovative design
has reduced the size, weight and power consumption of its FT-NMR electronics to
less than 50% of previous small footprint FT-NMR consoles. Its new, extremely
robust proton-carbon Fourier Probe requires no adjustments such as tuning and
matching, and includes a z-gradient for easy gradient spectroscopy and automated
gradient shimming. With hardware features designed for robustness and
ease-of-use, the Fourier 300 is a unique new low-maintenance, low operating
cost, easy to site FT-NMR system. The new Fourier 300 complements Bruker's
full-featured, industry-leading Avance NMR spectrometer series for multinuclear
and research applications.
"The availability of a truly compact, easy to use and affordable
high-resolution FT-NMR system opens up new market segments in education and
routine industrial and pharmaceutical chemistry, and enables more chemists to
explore the exciting possibilities offered by 1D and 2D FT-NMR analysis,"
commented Dr. Bernd Gewiese, President of Bruker BioSpin. "This novel and unique
system greatly expands our well-proven product line and has significant
potential to grow the medium field NMR market."
