Cryogenic Ltd, Phoenix NMR, Revolution NMR and IonField Systems
Sells and markets solids Magic Angle Spinning (MAS) probes. These are available as two types: (a) the Phoenix HXY probe with interchangeable probe heads for rotor sizes 1.2, 1.6, 3.2, 4, 5, 6 mm and static and; (b) the Phoenix HX probe with a fixed probe head which is ideal for performing solids on your liquids NMR system. Both are designed to be used in narrow/stand and wide bore magnets. 19F channels can be added to both. Other accessories for VT, spinning, standard samples are available. Phoenix NMR also services late-Varian and Agilent solids NMR probes. Phoenix NMR 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.
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 PlasmaKnife, the best-in-class plate cleaning system developed in collaboration with the NCATS group at the NIH, USA.
