Solid architecture and capable system; cost is high.
Application Area: MRI of rodents, in-vitro constructs and cells/tissues
"NEO architecture is quite advanced and sound. Initially software issues have been largely resolved. Some compatibility issues with older instrumentation. There is a steep learning curve on new software and it may not be as flexible as previous iterations. Price/cost is high."

This instrument is a must to have for every company doing chemistry.
Application Area:Structural determination
"Achieves high quality data, easy to use. Good value for money since it can be used for many years. Great support service from manufacturer."
While its predecessor, the AVANCE III HD architecture, already provided cutting-edge NMR performance, the AVANCE NEO takes this a step further. It features even faster control, improved dynamic range and greater flexibility and scalability.
The AVANCE NEO is based on a ‘transceive’ principle, meaning each NMR channel has both transmit and receive capabilities. So each channel is its own independent spectrometer with the full RF generation, transmission and receive infrastructure. This architecture provides the greatest flexibility in terms of instrument configuration and multi-channel operation. Multi-receive experiments are easily implemented with this new approach.
Also new in the AVANCE NEO is the concept of an embedded acquisition server and an associated client-server software architecture (TopSpin 4 and higher). This leaves the spectrometer independent of the client computer, thus giving the user the opportunity to control the system via operating system and location of choice (as in principle one could control the system via the cloud).
With the frequency range now extended to beyond 1.5 GHz, and with various functional enhancements in setup, diagnostics, memory buffers etc, the AVANCE NEO is well positioned to serve as the research platform of choice for the current and the next generation of NMR spectroscopists.
