Project Description

NMR Spectrometers for Fluorochemicals

Project period: 06/2014 - 10/2015

Nanalysis Corporation collaborates with Hansa Fine Chemicals GmbH and the Fraunhofer ICT-IMM Institute of Germany to develop an integrated continuous-flow analytical method based on a  low-field NMR spectrometer. This method will be used to analyse and control the flow output from a lab plant designed to produce industrially relevant fluoro-chemical. The project objective is to create a continuous flow liquid handling system with an embedded NMR detector. The flow system will be connected to an automated lab plant for production and analysis of medically and agriculturally important products.

Products: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectrometers

Nanalysis Corporation develops and manufactures scientific instruments. The company specializes in the production of portable Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometers for the laboratory instrumentation market. The first launched product was the 60MHz NMReady benchtop NMR spectrometer in 2012. This instrument is capable of measuring proton or fluorine spectra and represents the first fully featured NMR spectrometer in a single compact enclosure. This instrument can be used by chemical professionals in all types of industries (oil & gas, chemical, pharma, biotech, food processing), as well as by government and university labs.
