Concord, MA (PRWEB) July 27, 2010
Oxford Instruments Magnetic Resonance, a leading supplier of low-field benchtop nuclear magnetic resonance(NMR) technology, with North American operations based in Concord, Massachusetts, announces that it will be showcasing its popular MQC analyzers at the American Chemical Society (ACS) National Exposition, August 22nd – 25th, 2010 in booth #1126 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, Boston, Massachusetts.
Oxford Instruments' MQC is well suited to both product development and quality assurance applications. It is ideal for determining the oil content of seeds, nuts and grains as well as in a wide variety of processed foods, including snack foods and animal feed. The MQC is also used extensively to test the hydrogen content of fuels, the oil content of wax, spin finish applied to textile fibers, solid fat content of vegetable oils, the fluoride content of toothpaste, and for controlling a variety of polymer processing variables.
Since NMR acquires a signal from the whole sample and not just from the surface, it provides better accuracy and precision than alternative secondary techniques. For some applications, for example when analyzing oilseeds, it is possible to measure simultaneously both the water and oil concentrations.
A compact size and a separate housing for the electronics minimizes the footprint on critical laboratory benchtop workspace. It also includes a space-saving internal computer that runs Oxford Instruments unique and easy to use, EasyCal software. With the recent increase in size to a 17-inch LCD flat screen monitor mounted on the magnet, the user is provided with a clear view of data and operational instructions. New test and diagnostic software makes remote servicing of the instrument a cost-saving convenience.
