Quality Control in Steinheim 

Since we have limited space in our quality control department, we have never had the opportunity of operating an NMR device on site. After getting to know the Magritek Benchtop NMR for reaction monitoring during my studies at university, we implemented this comparably very small and easy-to-use device in our quality control lab. We mainly use it to confirm the identity of pure chemicals, but also determine possible impurities in certain cases. Besides being able to perform the measurements on site to save time and money, our lab personnel get first-hand experience and knowledge about the state-of-the-art NMR analytic which would not have been possible otherwise. Overall, we are very pleased with this instrument and are excited to follow future developments in the field of Benchtop NMR technology.
