Founded in 2004, Magritek is an advanced technology company exporting from Germany and New Zealand to customers all over the world. The initial technology and IP used in Magritek products was developed by research teams at RWTH University, Germany, and Massey University and Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.
In 2005, Magritek released the Terranova-MRI, the world’s first and only 3D MRI-capable teaching system for students and teachers in a normal laboratory environment. MRI experiments can now safely be done anywhere — the Terranova-MRI uses the Earth’s magnetic field.
In 2006, Magritek released the compact, flexible Kea NMR spectrometer console. Kea can be used to build ultra-low frequency systems with permanent and superconductor magnets.
In 2008, Magritek and ACT produced the first NMR rock core analyser for the oil and gas industry to use the innovative Halbach magnet technology together with Magritek’s advanced electronics and software. This technology allows a more efficient and open magnet structure.
In 2012, Magritek and ACT merged to enable them to provide the best service and support for their global customers.
In 2013, Magritek launched the Spinsolve Benchtop NMR Spectrometer capable of 1H and 19F and 2D NMR, with the highest resolution and sensitivity performance in its class. In late 2013, Magritek launched Spinsolve Carbon, the world’s first benchtop NMR Spectrometer capable of 13C NMR Spectroscopy.
Magritek provides complete NMR and MRI system solutions for the academic, research, pharmaceutical, polymer, food and oil and gas industry, as well as components and subsystems suitable for research laboratories.
Magritek has offices in San Diego, USA, Aachen, Germany and Wellington, New Zealand.
