Founded in 2004, Magritek is the global leader in manufacturing cryogen-free benchtop Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometers for the analytical instrument market. Magritek’s revolutionary 80, 60 and 43 MHz Spinsolve family of benchtop NMR models offer the highest sensitivity and resolution available in the market. These portable systems are robust and easy to use, allowing modern NMR methods to be performed on the chemistry lab bench or inside the fume hood next to a reactor. Magritek has offices in Germany, USA and New Zealand, as well as a worldwide network of partners to help support its customers.

Spinsolve is a revolutionary multinuclear NMR spectrometer that provides the best performance of any benchtop system available today. The Spinsolve spectrometers come in 43, 60, and 80 MHz models and can be equipped with unique features. With its small footprint, low weight and low cost you can have powerful, high resolution NMR spectroscopy in the chemistry lab.
Powerful, but still compact and portable, Magritek’s new generation of Kea NMR spectrometer, the Kea2, significantly improves performance and extends the frequency range of our signature NMR spectrometer line. With a footprint of 36 cm x 23 cm (12″ x 8″) by only 15 cm (5″) high, the Kea2 conserves lab space. Weighing less than 5 kg (11 lbs), it is easily moved and operated in almost any environment.
The unique, powerful Profile NMR-MOUSE® probe works hand-in-hand with the Kea2 spectrometer. The Profile NMR-MOUSE is a portable, open NMR sensor equipped with a novel permanent magnet geometry that generates a flat sensitive volume parallel to the scanner surface. The system can measure
NMR reaction monitoring is an excellent technique for determining reaction kinetics as well as reaction end points. The measurements are quantitative with only minimal calibration. The signal has a linear response to concentration and it is generally not sensitive to the matrix. The measurement is of the complete sample and is non-destructive.
There are many techniques available, however many require time consuming sample preparation and complicated instrumentation. NMR spectroscopy could be an invaluable technique for forensic chemists as it is recognized by SWGDRUG as a Category A analytical technique due to the exceptional discriminating power, and NMR is inherently quantitative. Therefore the identity and purity of the sample can be determined from one measurement.
NMR is best known for its use in structure determination. The chemical structure of a small molecule dictates a rational spectrum. This is because the electronic structure, the bedrock of chemistry, is what determines the chemical shift, while the number of nuclei determine the coupling and relative intensities.
Quality control is a constant challenge in food science and technology. The Spinsolve benchtop NMR spectrometer can be used to analyse commercial liquid food samples. It is worth noting that NMR can measure samples that are cloudy, coloured or bubbly, and does not require the traditional sample preparation of other analytical techniques. The samples can be taken straight from their containers and scanned without any further purification, dilution or other treatment.
The Spinsolve benchtop NMR spectrometer can be used to analyse crude oils, fuels and other petrochemical products. This can be used for chemometrics which is important for crude oil combinations and predicting product properties.
The problems and challenges encountered by NMR and MRI research scientists motivated the development of Magritek’s solutions. Our products are the result of years of research by our team of world experts in NMR.
Spinsolve is the perfect way to provide high throughput NMR as part of an undergraduate teaching program. The high sensitivity and advanced capability means it is fast and informative, critically important for a busy class. Spinsolve provides convenient, high performance NMR at a fraction of the cost of traditional NMR systems.
