Key Software Update That Significantly Enhances Its Original Tools for In-line, Better Integrated Routine Workflow for Interactive Structure Verification, Quantification and Elucidation

PHILADELPHIA, PA, March 18, 2013 – At Pittcon 2013, Bruker announces a new, updated version of their CMC product family, their unique assisted NMR workflow and spectral interpretation software suite. Bringing both routine and research users another step closer to their goal of Complete Molecular Confidence, chemists will benefit from CMC 2.0’s improved integration of automated acquisition, processing and reporting, together with faster algorithm performance for ‘live’, step-by-step interactive workflow assistance. CMC 2.0 includes the modules CMC-assist, CMC-q  and CMC-se which automatically assign NMR signals to structural moieties, conduct structural consistency assessments, deliver spectral analysis and enable easy structure elucidation.

With the structure verification module CMC-assist 2.0 Bruker remains the only provider enabling complete and automated integration of NMR workflow. From easy sample sample submission and automation, through acquisition, fully automatic 1D and 2D spectra analysis and finally automatically generated reports, the routine chemist’s wide range of tasks instantly becomes easier to manage and faster to complete.

Not only will CMC-assist 2.0 ease the workload at any chemist’s off-line workstation, but through seamless integration with Bruker’s latest NMR software releases TopSpinTM and IconNMRTM, direct integration with the unique and truly continuous workflow Fast Lane NMRTM is possible. Benefitting from closer incorporation within CMC-assist 2.0, Fast Lane NMR™ now perfectly integrates hardware and software, providing a real-timeanswers at the spectrometer. This automated acquisition and analysis feature enables grouping of multiple experiments for analysis and reporting and  structure verification based on both 1D 1H and, for higher confidence results, 2D (HSQC) experiments is fully enabled.

Having already found wide acceptance within industry and academic research since its introduction less than two years ago, the updated CMC-se 2.0 suite benefits users who are looking deeper into NMR spectroscopy in their evaluation of completely unknown structures. Newly integrated 2D experiments address the requirement for higher confidence, which is further enabled when combining CMC with the use of Bruker’s CryoProbe technology. CMC 2.0 is in permanent dialogue, enabling ‘live’ and continuous interaction. Users can instantly interact with the automated structure elucidation, step-by-step, considerably improving both workflow and staff productivity.

“CMC 2.0 algorithms combine the latest progress in emulating human logic with Bruker’s proven experience in spectra processing power and renowned strength in graphical interfaces. As a result we now offer our customers a great tool for increasing their efficiency and incorporating NMR in their daily analytical workflow”, commented Dr. Till Kühn, Product Manager at Bruker BioSpin for small molecule applications.
