Bruker places new units in Europe, Brazil

By staff writers

September 18, 2015 -- Bruker has obtained five orders for ultrahigh-field (UHF) nuclear MR (NMR) spectroscopy systems from Europe and Brazil.

The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) in Brazil is expanding its structural biology facility with the addition of a 900-MHz MR spectrometer. The 900-MHz system will be available as a regional resource for research in protein structure and dynamics, protein folding, and nucleic acid structure.

The École Polytechnique Féderale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland has ordered a Bruker 900-MHz instrument with the highest field wide-bore (89-mm inner diameter) magnet currently available for solid-state MR.

The University of Leeds in the U.K. is expanding its Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology with a 950-MHz NMR system equipped with a CryoProbe that is now designed for both carbon-13 and nitrogen-15 direct detection, besides traditional hydrogen-1 indirect detection. This technology makes the system suitable for determining structures, dynamics, and interactions of globular proteins, as well as for advanced functional and disease mechanism studies of intrinsically disordered proteins.

Also this year, Bruker received two additional orders for next-generation GHz-class systems from France and Germany, and Bruker's backlog for GHz-class NMR systems has now increased to nine systems for different European and Canadian customers. The Aeon 1.2-GHz systems' backlog is projected to ship over several years, starting in late 2017 or 2018.
