Stream the forensics webinar

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • Analytical properties of benchtop NMR uniquely suited to drug identification and quantification.
  • How to distinguish related compounds, including isomers, using benchtop NMR.
  • The potential for benchtop NMR to become a standard technique in forensics laboratories.


Learn about the latest Spinsolve developments at ENC

April 7th, 2016, by

Magritek CEO Dr Andrew Coy will be announcing the latest Spinsolve benchtop NMR features at ENC during the Mestelab Users Meeting on Sunday 10th April at 1.30pm.  The talk will show how modern high-field NMR experiments and techniques, such as Non-Uniform Sampling (NUS) and Pureshift protocols can be implemented and run on the Spinsolve benchtop NMR Spectrometer. Included in the presentation will be details on the new Spinsolve 60 launched at the ACS meeting in San Diego a few weeks ago.

Reaction monitoring research in the Cronin Group at the University of Glasgow

Magritek reports on reaction monitoring research using the Spinsolve benchtop NMR system in the Cronin Group at the University of Glasgow

Professor Lee Cronin holds the Regius Chair of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow. Research in the Cronin Group is motivated by the fascination for complex chemical systems and the desire to construct complex functional molecular architectures that are not based on biologically derived building blocks. They are developing a new approach to the chemical sciences which they call Chemical Cybernetics. This combines robotics, algorithms, flow chemistry and reaction programming. Over a number of years, Professor Cronin and his colleagues have used use a lot of integrated techniques to explore chemical reaction systems. For example, one networked flow and flow systems including mass spectrometry, IR, UV and NMR.

Celebrating 10 years

December 23rd, 2014, by

10 years ago we founded Magritek so we could reduce the size, cost and physical limitations NMR and MRI technology and by doing so make it available to a much wider and broader community of users and customers.  It has been an incredible journey so far, and with the products we have introduced, we can see our vision for NMR and MRI is now becoming reality.
