PALO ALTO, Calif., March 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Varian, Inc. (Nasdaq: VARI) announced today its new XSens(TM) Dual Cold Probe. Designed for use with the Varian NMR System, the new probe is Varian's most sensitive probe for 13C detected NMR experiments.
The XSens Probe offers productivity and data quality enhancements for researchers in pharmaceutical, agricultural, chemical and academic laboratories involved in the characterization of quantity-limited samples of natural products, reaction intermediates, metabolites and trace contaminants.
The new probe dramatically increases 13C sensitivity and reduces acquisition time 100-fold compared to a room temperature (RT) Dual Broadband (DB) probe. It also offers a significantly improved 1H sensitivity, reducing acquisition time for 1H detected experiments 75-fold compared to a RT DB probe. In addition to increasing throughput, the enhanced sensitivity for 13C makes it easier for researchers to take advantage of the simpler spectral information available from 13C experiments.
"The XSens Probe is a significant advance in Cold Probe technology," said Martin O'Donoghue, Senior Vice President, Scientific Instruments, Varian, Inc. "By greatly reducing acquisition times, this probe makes previously time- consuming 13C detected NMR analyses a more practical tool for busy laboratories."
