Compact FT-NMR with permanent magnet offers high-resolution spectra, outstanding ease of use and industry-leading TopSpin™ software.

At the American Chemical Society (ACS) Fall Meeting, Bruker has announced the FOURIER 60, an entirely new permanent-magnet based, benchtop FT-NMR (Fourier Transform Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) spectrometer.

Combining safety, efficiency, usability, ergonomics and performance, the FOURIER 60 is well suited for chemistry education at colleges and universities, as well as for industrial and applied markets.

It is driven by many of the same core technologies and know-how developed by the NMR market leader over many years, and is running Bruker's industry-leading NMR software TopSpin™.

This combination makes the FOURIER 60 a powerful and reliable NMR teaching instrument, with the high data quality and sensitivity suitable for the analysis of small molecules in chemistry, food, polymers, petrochemicals and many other industries.

The FOURIER 60 is an ergonomic benchtop NMR system, with easy sample introduction and an option for automatic sample changes.

It offers best-in-class resolution, a built-in pressurized air supply and an option for variable sample temperature control.

The use of advanced, cryogen-free, permanent magnet technology results in a small footprint and low weight for easy sitting on standard lab benches.

Both the TopSpin operating and integrated analysis software, as well as the industry-standard 5 mm NMR sample tube format are fully compatible with superconducting NMR systems.

This guarantees proven ease of use, and an easy transition for students to higher field instruments, which they may encounter in their careers.

Moreover, this ensures full compatibility between routine and research instruments in academic research and industrial settings, as NMR samples and data are fully compatible.

"The FOURIER 60 is ideal for the academic teaching lab, as it offers high performance and flexibility, as well as ease of use and robustness that both educators and students can rely on. The inclusion of Bruker's TopSpin software provides the ideal platform for intuitive learning and swift progression to more challenging experiments," commented Professor emer. Dr. Peter Bigler, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Bern, Switzerland.

"Our goal was to deliver excellent all-around usability to our customers, and to create an affordable, best-in-class benchtop FT-NMR spectrometer," said Dr. Thomas Bocher, Business Unit Manager for Compact Magnetic Resonance at Bruker BioSpin.

Dr. Bocher continued, "For more than 50 years Bruker's passion has been to provide the best NMR instruments in the world. With the introduction of the FOURIER 60, Bruker now offers the best-in-class, permanent magnet-based, benchtop FT-NMR spectrometer."
