Oxford Instruments’ X-Pulse Spectrometer brings revolutionary flexibility to benchtop NMR. Integrating real broadband X-nuclei capability, reaction monitoring, flow chemistry, and variable temperature with better spectral resolution, the X-Pulse allows users to conduct a wide variety of experiments on the bench in their labs.
The X-Pulse contains a 60 MHz permanent magnet with temperature stability and high homogeneity. This makes it easy to place the system in a lab and avoids the need for any liquid cryogens. The X-Pulse can be used with either regular 5 mm NMR tubes, or Oxford Instruments’ user-friendly flow cell.
The system is powered by a new and enhanced version of SpinFlow data acquisition software from Oxford Instruments, enabling standard experiments to be performed more easily, and making it more flexible for highly skilled users.
- Benchtop convenience—Users can use the instrument wherever it is most convenient, as there is no need for any special facilities or liquid cryogens.
- Clearer spectra—New shimming technology facilitates the standard spectral resolution of less than 0.35 Hz/10 Hz.
- Choose the nuclei—The world’s first broadband benchtop NMR spectrometer allows users to measure the nuclei needed for the experiment.
- Flexible software—SpinFlow advanced mode allows users to outline the experiments in the way they want.
- Easy to maintain—The probe is removable and easy to access for cleaning.
- No compromise—Interchangeable X-Pods enable users to enhance signal-to-noise ratio for particular nuclei.
- Easy operation—Complex pulse sequences can be carried out with just a single click through quick experiments, thus enabling anyone to access the power of NMR.
- Maximum stability—Flow liquid samples at adjustable temperature (20 °C–70 °C) without spectral artifacts. The separate electronics module means that high-duty cycle pulse sequences can be run without destabilizing the magnet.
Choose the Nuclei
True broadband capability offers users the liberty to choose the nuclei users need for their experiments—such as 1H, 13C, 31P, or something more unusual like 7Li, 11B, or 29Si. The nucleus of interest can be easily selected using the software and the probe can be adjusted to ensure users are working under the ideal conditions.
For certain benchtop NMR experiments, maximizing the signal-to-noise ratio could be the difference between failure and success. For low natural abundance nuclei such as 13C, it is vital to guarantee sensitivity.
The interchangeable X-Pods of the X-Pulse offer users the extra flexibility to realize maximum signal-to-noise ratio for particular nuclei. These pods can be exchanged swiftly and effortlessly without having to shut down the system. This enables users to be ready with either maximized sensitivity or the flexibility of multinuclear spectroscopy, whenever they require it.
