Solving industrial challenges with benchtop NMR

Benchtop NMR can be used to solve a broad range of industrial challenges from R&D, to process development and finally to quality control. Our X-Pulse broadband benchtop NMR spectrometer provides practical solutions in many fields, from understanding diffusion in battery electrolytes to determining the structure of small molecule pharmaceuticals.

The unique combination of true multi-nuclei broadband NMR on the bench combined with flow and variable temperature capabilities, allows the X-Pulse to greatly extend the range of potential benchtop NMR applications.

For over 25 years, our comprehensive range of time domain NMR instruments, including the MQC+, MQR, and GeoSpec, has been ensuring production quality in many industries including food, agriculture, textiles, pharma, and petrochemical, and we continue to find exciting new practical applications.
