Daedalus offer leading edge tools to utilize high pressure in NMR based
High active volume coupled with high pressure tolerance opens a host of applications in areas as diverse as petroleum chemistry, structural biology and quantum computing. Daedalus Innovations is the only provider of seamlessly integrated pressure generation and robust large active volume high resolution NMR cells rated to operation at pressures as high as 3 kbar.
Daedalus are also the world leaders in the development of the apparatus necessary to implement the “reverse micelle encapsulation strategy” for solution NMR studies of biological macromolecules.
High pressure NMR has a long and storied history in physics, chemistry and biophysics. However, historically the method has been greatly limited by the absence of commercial availability of high performance, large active volume NMR sample tubes capable of safe and sustained operation above 1 kbar pressures. Daedalus Innovations has solved this problem. We are the only source of complete high pressure NMR capability. Utilizing patented and proprietary designs and manufacturing processes, the Daedalus Innovations’ line of zirconia high pressure NMR tubes, titanium manifolds and computer-controlled pressure generator is in a class by itself. Our customers include leading academic and industrial researchers around the world and are engaged in far-ranging research projects including oil and gas exploration, nuclear chemistry, structural biology, molecular biophysics, and quantum computing.
The Daedalus Innovations’
high pressure NMR cells are truly in a class by themselves. Specialized
ceramic materials, proprietary manufacturing and patented tube and
manifold designs open the door to high performance NMR spectroscopy at
pressures ranging up to 3,000 bar. Used seamlessly with modern cryogenic
probes, the high active volume (3 mm ID) gives this tube unmatched NMR
performance and reliability.
For lower pressure
applications, such as those employed in the reverse micelle
encapsulation technique, we offer larger volume zirconia tubes with 3.6
mm ID in a 5 mm OD context. In addition, we also provide 10 mm OD
sapphire tubes mounted in our patented pressure manifold.
The Xtreme 60: Robust and precise control of pressure. Utilizing a large working volume, the Xtreme 60 provides the ultimate in pressure generation and control. Utilizing a high-torque motor and a precise computer control the Xtreme 60 is capable of generating pressures up to 4 kbar utilizing even relatively non-compressible water as the pressure generating fluid.
