Part of the Oxford Instruments Group


Pulsar is a high resolution, 60MHz benchtop NMR spectrometer, providing high quality 1-D and 2-D NMR spectra of 1H, 19F, 13C and 31P.

Pulsar uses a permanent magnet which means that it requires neither liquid helium nor liquid nitrogen. Advanced, automatic shimming produces a highly homogeneous magnetic field meaning that Pulsar is suitable for use in almost any academic or industrial chemistry laboratory, for teaching, for organic synthesis analysis, or for materials identification. For many analyses, liquid samples can be run neat; solid samples can be dissolved in deuterated or non-deuterated solvents. Intuitive, step-by-step software takes the user seamlessly through the measurement process, and data is processed with the industry-renowned Mnova software.

A library of pulse sequences is included, so everything is ready to go. The convenience and high performance of Pulsar means you get the power of NMR spectroscopy right where you need it – in your own lab.

  • Cryogen-free system
  • 19F or 1H measurements on single probe plus 13C or 31P

  • 60MHz rare-earth permanent magnet
  • High resolution, <0.5Hz
  • No specialist operator required
