Transforming NMR Analysis
for the Chemical Industry

Chemical manufacturing requires extensive testing: from incoming raw materials
through processing to final product quality control. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
(NMR) provides a valuable, comprehensive tool to identify and quantify multiple
compounds in a chemical mixture with just one measurement. The Bruker Fourier 80 benchtop
Chemical Mixture Profiler simplifies and extends the opportunity for NMR analysis to even the
routine laboratory. Expand your analytical capability for chemical mixture analysis with a database driven end-to-end workflow from measurement to report.

Optimized time-to-result
NMR analysis provides accuracy and operator independence essential for routine chemical analysis in a manufacturing environment. The Fourier 80 benchtop NMR provides the opportunity to fulfill all these requirements at exactly the location where you need it most.
Verify Results
Ensuring comparability within your analytical methods is important. The robust, nondestructive nature and consistency of NMR allows you to measure the same sample on different systems, at different times, yet with the same result.
From Sample to Report
An automated workflow provides identification and quantification of critical compounds in chemical mixtures: from incoming goods, to process control to quality control



Intuitive User Interface:
The Fourier80 Chem Lab with Mixture Profiling Module is a non-expert NMR solution for routine analysis in manufacturing environments​. It offers the power of NMR with an easy-to-use, fully automated work flow that produces direct, one-step chemical identification and quantification. Users with no NMR knowledge can perform advanced NMR analysis yet with automated data interpretation and reporting. The instrument is operated by the industry-standard TopSpinTM NMR software. The GoScanTM graphical user interface provides a straightforward  push button operator experience.

Unique to Bruker: floor-standing and benchtop NMR with same operating software

Concise Reporting of Results:
Automated report creation provides a simple table with compounds from a mixture accurately identified and quantified. NMR spectral data for compounds matched to database entries are included for additional analysis
