Next-generation NMR platform and console takes magnetic resonance research to a new level
The AVANCE NEO
At the 58th Experimental Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Conference (www.enc-conference.org), Bruker announces the launch of the AVANCE NEO platform, Bruker’s next-generation NMR electronics console in the AVANCE series.
Bruker is a specialist manufacturer of high-performance scientific instruments and high-value analytical and diagnostic solutions.
The new AVANCE NEO offers even faster control, improved dynamic range and enhanced flexibility and scalability, with a frequency range extended to 1.2 GHz.
Featuring a novel transceiver architecture, combining transmit and receive functionality for every channel, the AVANCE NEO offers enhanced experimental control, especially for the rapidly increasing number of multi-receiver NMR applications.
The ‘Transceive’ architecture also offers multiple receivers as a standard feature, enabling each channel of the AVANCE NEO to operate as a fully functional spectrometer.
Novel NMR multi-receive experiments can now be implemented for any combination of nuclei, with 4 receiver channels now standard for typical HCN-D biological NMR systems.
The AVANCE NEO supports NMR pulse programmes developed on previous AVANCE platforms, plus new multi-receive pulse sequencing and experimental design capabilities un-available in the field, until now.
Even faster switching times, expanded on-board memory (1 GB/channel), an embedded acquisition server and several user enhancements make the AVANCE NEO one of the most advanced NMR research platform for the scientific community today.
Dr. Werner Maas, President of the Bruker BioSpin Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy division, commented:
Bruker is very committed to enable our customers to drive rapid, continued innovation in magnetic resonance. The forward-thinking architecture behind the AVANCE NEO enables our customers to design leading-edge NMR experiments, with even better performance, flexibility and stability.”
With the introduction of this new equipment, Bruker will also launch its new NMR software, TopSpin 4, which introduces the concept of an embedded acquisition server with client-server architecture. This permits running the spectrometer independent of the client computer, and provides users with the opportunity to control the system via their chosen operating system.
Both the AVANCE NEO platform and TopSpin 4 software are available for high-end and research NMR spectrometers up to 1.2 GHz, while the AVANCE NanoBay system is offered for routine, small molecule applications.
Having undergone extensive Bruker applications laboratory and customer field testing, the software is already producing excellent results at numerous key customer sites. For example, Professor Muriel Delepierre of the Institut Pasteur in Paris, stated: “We are very pleased to have received the next-generation AVANCE NEO with our recently installed 800 MHz system. We are delighted with our initial results, the flexibility offered through the large database of existing experiments, and with the outstanding sensitivity in combination with our CryoProbe.”
