Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the addition of new electronic consoles, sample probes and systems software to its portfolio of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) products.
The new products include:



The DD2 (DirectDrive 2) NMR/MRI console, which features extended capabilities that deliver superior performance for demanding applications.

VnmrJ 3.1 software with new automated workflows and experimental methods to enhance throughput and productivity.

500- and 600-MHz OneNMR probes with ProTune PZT, expanding Agilent's range of high-performance probes to suit higher field strengths.

New narrow-bore HFXY solid-state NMR probes, extending the functionality currently available for wide-bore magnets to customers using narrow-bore magnet systems based on Agilent's T3 technology.



We are excited to introduce our first magnetic resonance products as the latest members of the Agilent family, said Regina Schuck, Ph.D., vice president and general manager of Agilent's Research Products Division. Agilent prides itself on developing cutting-edge technology that is designed to offer customers expanded capabilities for their myriad research needs. These products represent a significant first step in our commitment to becoming a technology leader in NMR.



Magnetic Resonance Console



The new DD2 NMR/MRI console extends experimental capabilities in a robust and reliable package. Among an array of new console features are new transmitter boards and phase shifters that enable finer control of phase, frequency and amplitude. These features directly translate to improved waveform control and better experimental results.



VnmrJ 3.1



VnmrJ 3.1 introduces the concept of automated, sample-centric workflows that make it easy and intuitive to execute experiments and analyze data. The new software package also comprises an expanded portfolio of experimental tools, including qNMR, DOSY and Fast Methods that enable researchers to easily quantify the constituents in a sample, analyze mixtures and ramp system throughput using optimized experimental sequences.



The OneNMR Probe



Agilent has expanded the portfolio of OneNMR probes to include new versions at 500- and 600-MHz with automated tuning capabilities. This advanced technology platform enables researchers to utilize a single probe to perform experiments on multiple nuclei without switching probes.



Narrow-Bore HXFY Probe



The new narrow-bore HFXY probe utilizes the same T3 technology found in the company's state-of-the-art wide-bore HXFY MAS probe. Ideal for complex solid-state NMR applications, the new design enables customers with narrow-bore magnets to access a wide range of experiments without the need for multiple probes.



These new products will be on display at the Experimental Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Conference, April 10-15 in Pacific Grove, Calif.
