The MQC+ benchtop NMR analyser measures oil, water, fluorine and solid fat in a variety of samples and is typically used for quality assurance and quality control.

Fast, accurate, non-destructive analysis

Analysis using the MQC+ takes from a few seconds to a few minutes, which means that a high volume of samples can be processed quickly and efficiently. As NMR signals are generated from all parts of the sample not just the surface, even if they are opaque, more accurate measurements are guaranteed. NMR measurements do not damage the sample in any way, so samples can be kept for repeat measurements or to be analysed using other techniques.

Minimal sample preparation with no hazardous solvents or chemicals

Grinding or other forms of sample preparation are rarely needed. Samples are simply transferred into a sample tube, conditioned and then analysed. The MQC+ NMR method does not require solvents or other chemicals, removing the need for fume cabinets, specially trained staff and expensive disposal procedures.

Easy to use

The MQC+ benchtop NMR analyser is very easy to use. Lab technicians will be productive in no time as minimal training is required. The software provides step by step operator guidance with clear on-screen prompts; there are also status indicator lights at the sample chamber entrance. Operator prompts can be customised, and displayed in any language.

In many industries there is a requirement to accurately, reliably and simply measure the amount of a viscous or liquid component in the presence of other solid materials. The MQC+ meets this requirement with a technology that avoids the needs to separate the different phases; making sample preparation trivial, removes the need for extensive operator training, and provides fast accurate results. That means a more consistent product from your manufacturing operations, better process control, and reduced costs.
