Interlaboratory Comparison of Benchtop NMR Spectrometers

Due to its advantages of being a direct comparison method, quantitative NMR spectroscopy (qNMR) becomes increasingly popular in industry. While conventional high-field NMR systems are often associated with high investment and operational costs, the upcoming market of permanent-magnet based benchtop NMR systems show considerable promise for many applications. Their small size also enables at-line quality control.

In USP qNMR Workshop, held November 17–19, 2020, Dr. Michael Maiwald presented the results of the first interlaboratory comparison study, conducted by the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing of Germany (BAM), investigating the qNMR performance of benchtop NMR spectrometers.
