Thermo Fisher Scientific Releases Next-Generation Benchtop NMR Spectrometer
Academic and industrial laboratories can now easily collect routine high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) data on molecules in solution using the Thermo Scientific picoSpin 80, a portable, competitively-priced NMR spectrometer built for benchtop operation. The instrument’s magnet, rated at 2 Tesla, is designed to provide superior resolution of chemical and structural characteristics not available using lower magnetic field strengths.
Based on published specifications, the Thermo Scientific picoSpin 80 spectrometer features the highest resolution of many widely-known, currently available benchtop NMR instruments, offering scientists a complement to the already popular Thermo Scientific picoSpin 45 spectrometer.
“The picoSpin 80 and picoSpin 45 are game-changing instruments that make NMR analysis possible for more scientists, especially in academic, industrial or R&D laboratories,” said Simon Nunn, global marketing director, molecular spectroscopy, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “The picoSpin 80 provides nearly double the analytical power of the picoSpin 45, producing even more detailed spectra, marking another step in our continuing commitment to make high-quality NMR spectrometers available to as many scientists as possible.”
The picoSpin 80 spectrometer features and benefits include: 
  • Temperature-controlled magnet that does not require liquid cryogens;
  • Lightweight, portable design intended to make it easy to share the instrument across multiple laboratories;
  • Easy-to-operate fluid capillary system that does not require NMR tubes or other consumables.
