Announcing New FT-NMR Fourier 80 Benchtop Capabilities for Pharmaceutical and Food Analytics Markets | Business

BILLERICA, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 10, 2022–

Bruker Corporation (Nasdaq: BRKR) today announced new capabilities for its benchtop Fourier Transform (FT) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer, the Quartermaster 80, which does not require special laboratory infrastructure or cryogens, and offers excellent 1 H sensitivity of 200:1 for gradient spectroscopy proton probes. A new adjustable temperature option increases experimental flexibility, while new solutions for pharmaceutical and food analysis improve synthesis and process control, bringing NMR capabilities to more research and analytical laboratories.

The improved Quartermaster 80 now has a Adjustable temperature (AT) option, expanding its range of applications by allowing the analysis of samples from 25°C to 60°C, all compatible with the option Quartermaster 80 PAL sample changer.

New Quartermaster 80 reaction monitoring solution RxnLab™ for chemical and pharmaceutical laboratories features temperature-controlled reaction pathways to minimize heat loss, optimize process control, and monitor reaction products with the new Quartermaster 80 flow accessory. Functioning InsightMR software, the RxnLab brings benchtop FT-NMR to biological and chemical production with push-button operation for non-NMR experts. For non-flow measurements, the Fourier RxnLab can also use standard 5 mm NMR tubes. The new Fourier 80 GxP Preparation Kit enables full GxP compliance for development and manufacturing labs with 21 CFR part 11 compliance.

“We like the Quartermaster 80, it’s been running 24/7 since it arrived,” says Professor Andre Simpson of the University of Toronto. “What sets it apart is its flexibility to run experiments from our high-field NMR systems, including any pulse programs we’ve written ourselves. The Fourier 80 revolutionizes what we can do at low field and truly makes it a powerful research tool.

A new Quartermaster 80 food analysis solution, called NMR Olive Oil Profiling™ 1.0, provides an analysis of the authenticity and quality of olive oil, one of the most adulterated food products in the world. New Profiling Olive Oil 1.0 suitable for olive oil bottlers, olive oil analysis laboratories and satellite laboratories. Its 400 MHz high-field companion RMN FoodScreener supports private and government testing laboratories in the analysis of multiple or complex food matrices.

Dr. Venita Decker, Product Manager Compact NMR at Bruker, said: “These new Quartermaster 80 capabilities and solutions push the boundaries of benchtop FT-NMR. With the Adjustable Temperature option, analytical chemists can now measure samples, for example, at 25°C or 37°C one day, and polymers at 60°C the next. This is particularly useful for reaction monitoring in chemical and pharmaceutical research and QC.
