Kenichi Hachiya. Development Group,Engineering DivisionIn August 2014, JEOL RESONANCE released a new NMR spectrometer, the ‘Z series’ (JNM-ECZS & JNM-ECZR). The routine ‘S’ model delivers performance equivalent to the high-end research ‘R’ model, but the spectrometer was smaller than all previous models – the main cabinet being just half the size of existing models. Here, we continue the story behind the birth of the world’s smallest, high performance NMR spectrometer.
Katsuo Asakura.Assistant Manager, Solution Marketing(at the time)In 2013, JEOL RESONANCE launched the cryogenic NMR probe systems,”UltraCOOL” and “SuperCOOL”. Delivering sensitivity far exceeding conventional room temperature probes together with ease of use beyond that previously associated with cooled probes, such as probe change whilst cooled, and variable temperature measurement capability, the products received a lot of positive response. However, many dramatic stories lay behind the birth of these products.
