picoSpin-45 Benchtop NMR Spectrometer a Finalist in the European Life Sciences Awards

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) June 25, 2012

The picoSpin™-45 benchtop NMR spectrometer was named one of three finalists for “most innovative new product” at The European Life Sciences Award ceremony, held on May 29, 2012 in Hamburg, Germany. Present at the event were John C. Price, President of picoSpin, and Andrew Waldes, Director of Operations, Cole-Parmer UK. Cole-Parmer is the exclusive global distributor for the picoSpin™-45 benchtop NMR spectrometer.

picoSpin’s breakthrough product, the picoSpin™-45 benchtop NMR spectrometer, delivers true high-resolution NMR spectroscopy in a rugged shoe-box sized package at a cost far below any previous technology. John Price commented, "We are honored to receive this recognition from the life science community. In our first year of production, picoSpin’s rugged and reliable miniature NMR technology has proven itself in applications such as chemical manufacturing, quality control, research, and education. Life science applications are among our most challenging opportunities, but we have seen widespread interest from pharmaceutical companies for monitoring reaction scale-up and for quality control in manufacturing processes. Our distribution partner, Cole-Parmer, has seen strong demand for the product across Europe and around the globe, and has responded by fully supporting us with their worldwide sales and marketing operation." The picoSpin™-45 has also been recognized as a 2011 Edison Award Winner for best new product.

The European Life Sciences Awards are sponsored by the UK-based Society of Biology. The Society’s vision is to represent all who are committed to biology in academia, industry, education and research, to facilitate the promotion and translation of advances in biological science for national and international benefit; and to engage and encourage public interest in the life sciences. Judges for the 2012 Life Sciences Awards included Steve Rees, VP Screening and Sample Management, AstraZeneca; Hakim Djaballah, Director, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Anthony Davies, Director of High Content Research, Trinity College Dublin.
