High Resolution Field-Cycling NMR Technology

We, "Field Cycling Technology Ltd.", are specialized in unique instrumentation for High-Resolution Field-Cycling NMR Relaxometry and also focus on continuous development of this technology.

We are going to participate in 39th FGMR annual discussion meeting, Joint Conference of the French and German Magnetic Resonance Societies, held at University of Bayreuth, Germany, during September 25 to 28, 2017.
This year we will present our work and to have small demonstration in our exhibition booth. Please come to visit us! We would love to hear your thoughts and opinions.
If you have any query or question, please feel free to go to our query page on “Contact”.

ISMAR 2017:
ISMAR 2017 was held on July 23-28, 2017 and the venue would be in Québec City, Canada.
Thank all participants and all the visiting to our booth! Wish to see you again!

We have designed a compact mechanical field cycling shuttle device for measuring field-dependent NMR interactions. The device has been installed in commercial high field, high resolution NMR spectrometers at 500, 600 and 700 MHz without modification of the host spectrometers. The system uses conventional NMR tubes for measuring high resolution spectra of biopolymers with sensitivity of the host spectrometers reduced only by relaxation during travel, which is 80 ms for a distance of 90 cm. Thus, a full-range relaxation experiments can be conducted as conventional NMR experiments.

This design has been adapted on Burker standard bore 600MHz equipped with 5mm QXI probehead in High Field NMR core facility (HFNMRC), Taiwan, and Bruker standard bore 700MHz equipped with 5mm cryoprobe (5mm TCI) and Bruker wide bore 500MHz in CEA Saclay, France.
