The minispec ProFiler is a handheld NMRinstrument for relaxation measurements in the near surface volume of unrestricted size samples.Single-Sided NMR is the generic name associated with these types of NMR devices.
mq-ProFiler: a bench-top spectrometer for single-sided NMR
The mq-ProFiler is a compact NMR relaxometer, equipped with single-sided magnet and RF probes for performing 1H-NMR experiments within the first few millimeters below the surface of arbitrarily shaped samples.
The system is based on Bruker`s well-proven minispec mq series console, a broadbanded electronics unit which works with any kind of minispec probe. The magnet assembly of the mq-ProFiler consists of two rectangular magnets, placed in an antiparallel configuration and fixed to an iron yoke, and generates a static surface field. The winning features that distinguish the mq-ProFiler from other single-sided NMR tools are mainly related to its RF probe design.
