Capturing Broad-Range NMR
The new Varian NMR System incorporates an innovative data acquisition control platform, which improves the rate of implementation of complex, information-rich NMR experiments to assist a broader customer base. The instrument is available at field strengths ranging from 300 MHz to 900 MHz and is used for applications such as protein structure, function and dynamics, small-molecule structure elucidation, and mixture analysis studies. At the core of the Varian NMR System is Varian’s DirectDrive architecture, which enables up to a tenfold gain in throughput and is scalable for adding modules as customer needs change.

Linking Clinical Data with eCaselink
DSG has released the newest version of its EDC technology, eCaseLink 6.0, which builds on eCaseLink’s pioneering software and adds a medical record imaging technology that allows users to review and integrate images with clinical data. According to the company, this software is the first and only in the data management industry that provides immediate cross-form, cross-visit, or server edits without requiring the site user to submit, and does not require eCaseLink client software. The eCaseLink page-by-page technology allows for mid-study changes, additions, and savable interfaces without study interruptions or downtime.

Hybrid MS Optimizes Ion Transport to TOF
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has introduced the LCMS-IT-TOF, a novel hybrid LC/mass spectrometer for biomarker discovery, metabolite identification, and proteomics research. Coupling atmospheric pressure ionization with ion-trap and time-of-flight technologies, the LCMS-IT-TOF produces high mass accuracy and high mass resolution (10,000 at 1000 m/z) independent of MS mode. The LCMS-IT-TOF is designed to maximize sensitivity by optimizing the ion transport to the TOF analyzer.

May the Force Be with You
Bruker BioSpin has added a new 850 US2 MHz standard bore actively shielded magnet to its line of ultra-field NMR systems. Positioned above the field strength of existing 800 US2 magnets, the 850 US2 magnet allows structural biology and solid-state NMR researchers to push for ultra-field NMR capabilities at intermediate budgets, while retaining the advantages of actively shielded magnets. It combines Bruker BioSpin’s UltraShield and UltraStabilized technologies, reducing the magnetic stray field by an order of magnitude in volume and creating a smaller footprint than non-shielded magnets.
