At WWMR 2010, Bruker introduces SampleXpress, a new solution for medium-throughput automation in NMR routine and research applications. Its compact, fully integrated design can reduce space requirements and sample transfer times, Bruker claims.

Combined with a built-in barcode reader for automatic sample identification, SampleXpress is designed for optimizing throughput in standard NMR service laboratories. In addition, sample safety is maximized thanks to interchangeable, easy-to-fill cassette modules that can be loaded on the bench, the company says.

SampleXpress cassettes hold up to 60 standard-length NMR tubes from 100 mm up to 190 mm, and with variable diameters from 1.7 mm to 10 mm. A touch-panel offers direct and simple control for individual sample submission. The system is compatible with all Bruker AVANCE™ NMR spectrometers and can be mounted on all shielded Bruker magnets up to 850 MHz and most non-shielded Bruker magnets up to 600 MHz.

SampleXpress is controlled by IconNMR™, Bruker's NMR software for automation. The barcode identification enables the use of Bruker's laboratory information system SampleTrack™ for sample tracking. These NMR productivity tools excel whenever large numbers of samples need to be measured, e.g. in multi-user or medium-throughput facilities.

The new product line also includes the SampleXpress Lite™, an entry-level system for NMR automation that operates without barcode reader and touch panel. The SampleXpress Lite incorporates a removable carousel that can hold up to 16 samples, and allows sample submission of experiments in batch mode. Very short exchange times between experiments and random access to the individual samples via IconNMR™ can increase efficiency and flexibility within the analytical lab.

Dr. Ruediger Bertermann from the Department of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Wuerzburg, Germany commented: "We were impressed by the very fast and simple installation of the SampleXpress in our NMR lab. Besides the significantly increased efficiency with faster exchange times, and the user-friendly handling of the system, we have also benefitted from the highly improved protection of our samples."
