Bruker this week announced it launched its next-generation Fourier 80 benchtop spectrometer system.
Fourier 80 is an 80 MHz Fourier Transform Nuclear Magnetic Resonance benchtop spectrometer that is equipped for gradient spectroscopy. It is designed for organic or medicinal chemistry analysis, NMR teaching, synthesis verification or routine analysis in a chemistry lab.
The Fourier 80 system features an optional CTC PAL sample changer and can be operated by the easy-to-use GoScan software for NMR beginners or TopSpin NMR software.
Bruker’s latest iteration of the device includes a pulsed field gradient that has been used in high-field NMR spectroscopy to quickly get artifact-free spectra. The new PAL sample charger can also run up to 132 samples, including two reference samples.
“Bruker is proud to offer the Fourier 80 with new, industry-leading capabilities like routine gradient spectroscopy, and a robust, well-accepted PAL sample changer. High-performance 80 MHz FT-NMR can now be used efficiently in any chemistry lab, just like benchtop mass spectrometers or FT-IR systems which have proliferated in chemistry labs for decades. The Fourier 80 is providing education packages to give instructors tools to introduce young scientists to the power of FT-NMR. With the Fourier 80, we further ‘democratize’ the many applications of NMR,” Bruker BioSpin president Falko Busse said in a news release.
