Cryogenic Ltd, Phoenix NMR, Revolution NMR, Bridge12 and IonField Systems
Produces solids Magic Angle Spinning (MAS) NMR probes. These are available as: (a) the HXY probe with interchangeable probe heads for various rotor sizes from 1.2 mm to 6 mm and static, and; (b) the HX probe with a fixed probe head. Both can be used in standard and wide bore magnets (solids or liquids NMR systems). 19F channels can be added to both. Other accessories for VT, spinning, standard samples are available. In addition is the 2.5 mm HFXY solid state DNP NMR probe with auto sample insert and eject with low LN2 consumption. Phoenix NMR services late-Varian and Agilent solids NMR probes and has a close relationship with Revolution NMR ensuring access to state-of-the-art spinning systems, components and parts fabrication.
Cryogenic have pioneered the application of cryogen free technologies for more than 20 years and produce various cryogenic measurement systems including VSM, DC SQUID magnetometers, various superconducting magnets such as beam line, gyrotron and other applications. Since the late 1990s Cryogenic Ltd has developed magnets for use in EPR and NMR which have the ability to sweep over their entire field range without consuming any liquid cryogens. These magnets can also be equipped with variable temperature inserts with base temperatures below 2 K. Cryogenic Ltd are currently marketing their latest products which are high resolution solid state NMR magnets from 7.05 T to 14.1 T, sweepable and available with or without active shielding. In addition, a cryogen free cryostat for EPR has been developed which provides low base temperatures allowing low temperature EPR experiments on metalloenzymes and proteins over extended period of times with unprecedented convenience improving productivity and applicability.
Co-founded by the engineer who originated the design of the PENCIL rotor system provided on Chemagnetics, Varian and Agilent solids NMR systems and producing wide bore MAS probe including standard HX and HXY, cryogenic (with or without DNP capability) spinning systems, high pressure MAS and e-Free HX NMR probes. In addition, Revolution NMR produce PENCIL rotors, modules and rotor and module parts along with sample packing tools. Revolution NMR has collaborated with Bruker BioSpin to produce the A2B kit to allow legacy PENCIL probes to be fully compatible with their new NMR systems. Revolution NMR also services Chemagnetics and early Varian solids NMR probes.
Bridge12 provides THz/microwave technology for applications in magnetic resonance including active and passive components such as gyrotrons and transmission lines for Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) enhanced NMR spectroscopy. In addition, they offer turn-key high-frequency (> 100 GHz) Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) systems and upgrades to perform Overhauser DNP experiments on any commercial or custom-built X-Band (9 GHz) EPR spectrometer. Bridge12 products find their application in academic research as well as industrial research and development. The company has supplied instruments to research groups in the United States, Japan, South Korea, Germany and Israel. Bridge12’s research and manufacturing facility is located near Boston in Framingham, Massachusetts, USA.
IonField Systems have pioneered the use of ambient plasma to treat disposable pipette tips and microtitre plates so that they can be reused multiple times saving consumable costs and reducing
landfill or the amount of plastic going to incinerators. TipCharger, the pipette cleaning system, is available for 8, 96, 384 channel pipette based and for 384 and 1536 channel pin tools based
liquid handling systems. Microtitre plates can be treated with the Micro Plate Cleaning System (MCS), the best-in-class plate cleaning system developed in collaboration with the NCATS group at the
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, the MCS has been extended to be used with deep well microplates and in conjunction with robotics from Lab Services to create a automated workcell which can clean high volumes of microplates.
