NANTES, France - July 2, 2018 - At EUROMAR 2018 conference (www.euromar2018.org), Bruker announced the iProbe™ HRMAS, which now enables full automation of high-resolution magic angle spinning (HRMAS) NMR. Built on the recently introduced iProbe platform, the new HRMAS technology offers for the first time all benefits of automated tuning and matching for all RF-channels, together with accurate automated adjustment of the magic angle position. The automatic sample exchange capabilities of the iProbe HRMAS enable simplified sample handling and experiment optimization, leading to higher reproducibility and productivity in academic, industrial and clinical research.
Falko Busse, Ph.D., President of the Bruker BioSpin Group, stated: "Bruker is very committed to provide our scientific and industrial customers tools for maximum scientific productivity. The forward-thinking architecture behind the iProbe HRMAS concept allows basic research as well as applied science customers the efficient implementation of leading-edge HRMAS experiments, with even better performance, ease of use and stability."
Bruker also presents other novel magnetic resonance based tools for chemistry, biomolecular and material science research at EUROMAR 2018: The Biosolids CryoProbe™ is the latest technology introduction of the high-sensitivity CryoProbe series. Biosolids CryoProbes now allow the investigation of various biological solids, such as membrane proteins or disease aggregates at physiological temperatures, with a three-fold boost in sensitivity. After the extremely successful adoption of cryogenically cooled NMR probes for liquids NMR and MR imaging, the Biosolids CryoProbe represents the 3rd frontier for this breakthrough technology. The probes, designed for standard-bore magnets, are compatible with the CryoPlatform™. They can reach magic angle spinning (MAS) rates of up to 20 kHz.
Bruker's line of Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) NMR systems has now expanded to include a 263 GHz klystron microwave source for DNP NMR for materials research at 400 MHz, and a 593 GHz gyrotron microwave source for high-field 900 MHz DNP NMR for biological research. The 263 GHz klystron offers DNP at lower cost, and with reduced footprint and facility requirements. Bruker delivered the first 593 GHz DNP system in October 2017 to EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. Development included a new gyrotron tube design for 593 GHz, using a 11.7 T gyrotron magnet, custom microwave transmission line, and new 900 MHz low-temperature MAS DNP probes.
