Bruker’s Fourier 80 is an 80 MHz high-performance nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) benchtop spectrometer built to handle the needs of a standard laboratory.

The newest version currently comprises a pulsed field gradient and provides the option of an industry-standard CTC PAL® sample changer. This version delivers even better sensitivity and a 20% enhanced resolution performance.

Easy to set up

Thanks to its cryogen-free magnet design, Fourier 80 makes NMR available in the lab where operators and users work. It can be set up on the bench or in the fume hood without requiring new infrastructure, offering minimal cost of ownership and easy maintenance. The benchtop’s performance, together with the intuitive software, enables any existing lab to include the conclusive analytical answers only NMR can deliver.

Easy to use

The Fourier 80 benchtop spectrometer includes GoScan™, an advanced interface that guides users through pre-set, exclusive workflows. Beginner NMR users can use pre-set data acquisition selections in the GoScan software, or modify them, while skilled users can use Bruker’s industry-standard TopSpin™ software for more exhaustive acquisition parameters. GoScan also runs the CTC PAL sample changer at the click of a button.

Easy to do more

The Fourier 80 benchtop spectrometer has been engineered for maximum data quality and stability at 80 MHz, with superior resolution, lineshape, and sensitivity in 80 MHz homonuclear 1H or heteronuclear 1H/13C FT-NMR experiments. It works using the TopSpin™ software from Bruker, thus providing users access to the wide-ranging TopSpin library of 1D and 2D homonuclear and proton-carbon heteronuclear experiments and pulse programs.

Workflows for specific analytical questions

The Fourier 80 benchtop spectrometer comes with workflows and protocols to cater to four particular markets:

Academic and research: With the availability of the hands-on Fourier in university labs, scientists would no longer have to face access bottlenecks and hurdles, enabling them to move forward with their work at the click of a button.

Forensics: NMR offers data with a high level of accuracy in minimum time. At present, the Fourier CrimeLab offers NMR as an accessible, daily tool for forensics.

Education: The Fourier EduLab does not require any new infrastructure and has low maintenance costs, indicating that an additional number of students can use it straight away in the lab for training. Furthermore, it does not require any special preparation for holidays or prolonged breaks—users just need to shut it down.

Synthesis control: In industrial, academic, and pharmaceutical labs, chemists have to confirm the success of synthesis steps to create superior-quality end products. Fourier ChemLab offers unmatched structural information regarding intermediate compounds and educts or side products that might impact the subsequent synthesis step.
