PRLog - Feb. 10, 2012 - HANWELL, U.K. -- Chemists and academic leaders around the world recently received demonstrations of the picoSpin™-45L Benchtop NMR Spectrometer during a series of workshops and seminars.
The picoSpin-45L NMR Spectrometer is a 2011 Edison Awards Winner for Best New Product and analyzes liquid samples with 100 ppb resolution or better. Only 20 microliters of sample fluid is needed to obtain a spectrum. Its compact size and portability, weighing just 5 kg, makes it a desirable unit for lab researchers.
Currently, academia relies primarily on paper NMR spectra data. Now, with an affordable option, students can gain real-time, hands-on experience. “As a biochemistry teacher, I want my students to get practical experience on NMR spectroscopy. This instrument and its software seem to be very useful for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. We appreciate the initiative taken by Cole-Parmer for educational cause. With this instrument, students can now experience NMR hands-on in chemistry lab courses and in research projects,” said Dr. Sangita Roy, HOD, Department of BioChemistry, Oxford College of Science, India.
More UK workshops are planned for 2012; contact Cole-Parmer on 020-8574-7556 to register your interest.
