To keep their NMR tubes from spinning out of control, researchers performing NMR spectroscopy require tubes manufactured with uniform precision. For many years, scientists have relied on Kontes brand NMR Tubes, and that legacy continues today with Kimble Chase.
Kimble Chase, the largest manufacturer of laboratory glassware products worldwide, produces Kontes brand NMR tubes with strict adherence to rigorous production and quality standards to assure wall thickness, concentricity and camber are exact. A large selection of NMR tubes are available, including 3mm, 5mm and 10mm diameters, round or flat bottomed tubes, and specialty tubes equipped with valves or threaded openings. All Kontes brand NMR tubes are constructed of KIMAX® borosilicate glass with two grades available to meet every scientist’s needs; KG-33 glass is the lowest thermal expansion glass tubing offering the highest degree of thermal shock resistance for high temperature applications; and, N-51A is low thermal expansion glass tubing to accommodate ambient temperature applications.
Available NMR tube closures include pressure caps comprised of polyethylene or PTFE, and red or white rubber septa. Polyethylene pressure caps are supplied with tubes ordered with caps included. Kimble Chase provides researchers with accessories that include manifolds, racks, funnels, pipettes and tube washers. Kimble Chase is the leader in market share for reusable, disposable, specialty and custom scientific glassware. Specialty glass apparatus for NMR spectroscopy are referenced in ASTM, USP and AOAC and APHA procedures.
Kimble Chase manufactures Kontes brand NMR tubes in U.S. facilities that comply with ISO 9001 quality management standards.
