Norell Inc., the world’s top manufacturer of precision NMR tubes, and Nanalysis Corp., the world’s leader in true bench-top NMR spectrometers, have announced a strategic partnership. This partnership supports Nanalysis’ mission to make NMR accessible directly to end-users on the bench and in the field. Serving millions of customers worldwide, Norell makes precision and high throughput NMR tubes and accessories targeted to the specific needs of end-users.
“We have served the NMR community with constant innovation and a commitment to excellence since 1967” said Greg Norell, CEO, Norell Inc. “I believe that it is time to make NMR spectroscopy more accessible. To do this, we’ve created a simple way for educators in the United States to acquire NMR spectrometers and accessories. We are very excited to be a distributor of Nanalysis’ NMReady in the USA.”
Nanalysis and Norell are working together to incorporate NMR into more academic institutions and industrial labs. The goal is for NMR to no longer be a tightly controlled resource available to small groups of end-users. Undergraduate students will now get the chance to gain NMR knowledge with hands-on learning using standard tubes and instrumentation. This topic will be further discussed at ACS in the Division of Chemical Education, March 16, 2014 by Dr. Susanne Riegel from Nanalysis.
“We already ship Norell NMR tubes with every one of our spectrometers, and are excited to formalize this relationship as it builds on our mission to increase accessibility of NMR, and because of Norell’s long standing success in the NMR industry” said Sean Krakiwsky, CEO of Nanalysis Corp. “Norell’s quality products and deep relationships combined with Nanalysis’ world-class engineering and innovation make for a formidable team in the nascent bench-top NMR market. Over the next decade, NMR spectrometers will proliferate on the lab bench, in chemical production, and in the field in much the same way that other instruments such as infrared spectrometers have.”
There over 200,000 chemistry labs around the world, and today less than 1000 have NMR spectrometers in them. The opportunity is vast to bring NMR to the chemistry lab, as well as the millions of field offices, mobile lab trucks, and chemical production facilities.
About Norell Inc.
Norell, Inc., who in 1977 pioneered the first high throughput NMR sample tube, made improvements to high precision NMR tubes by introducing the “Select Series” product line which is manufactured out of ASTM Type 1 Class A glass. Key properties that make this glass type desirable for NMR are its high degree of thermal shock resistance and low expansion coefficient. This allows for a greater margin of safety from breakage when used in variable temperature applications and freeze/thaw cycling, or under any other application where large temperature variations are required in the experiment. Each NMR tube is checked for concentricity and camber specifications utilizing proprietary technology. Norell takes NMR tube manufacturing to a new level of science.

Fraunhofer ICT-IMM will coordinate a transatlantic research collaboration with Nanalysis Corp and Hansa Fine Chemicals to develop a system for the continuous-flow synthesis of fluorine- and phosphor-containing fine chemicals with an integrated online NMR analysis.
Fluorine- and phosphor-containing fine chemicals are essential building blocks for pharmaceutical and agrochemical compounds. Many of today’s Life Science products contain fluorinated groups that enhance the biological activity of the active pharmaceutical ingredient. Many insecticides are based upon organophosphates and the desired toxicity of these agrochemicals justifies a high level on safety for the chemical synthesis and analysis. Chemical production in small reactor volumes in combination with a non-contact analytical method like NMR spectroscopy allows safe handling and reduced exposure of organophosphates to lab workers.
The international project is funded by the Central Innovation Program for SMEs (AIF/ZIM) of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) in Germany and by the International Technology Partnership program of the Alberta Ministry of Innovation and Advanced Education delivered by the German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research (GCCIR) in Alberta, Canada. Overall project funding is approx. 430.000 €.
A powerful tool for chemical industry
“This is an exciting project. Working with experienced and knowledgeable partners, will enable us to adapt our NMReady™ technology to the field of continuous flow reactor chemistry and in a larger sense to flow enabled online NMR in many new applications”, said Bruce Lix, Director of Business Development for Nanalysis Corp.
The continuous flow synthesis of fine chemicals in microreactors in combination with NMR-based online analytics creates a powerful tool to the chemical industry producing fluorine- and phosphor-containing compounds.
For Jan Barten, Managing Director at HFC, this means “The development of continuous flow reactors with intelligent analysis by NMR will greatly reduce our production time and enable us to engage in more chemical synthesis research. In the end we see this project as a potential cost savings and business building opportunity that will enable us to expand our reach to new customers”.
Patrick Löb, Head of Department Continuous Chemical Engineering at Fraunhofer ICT-IMM added “This international project allows us to demonstrate the groundbreaking combination of continuous-flow chemical synthesis with online NMR analysis. Nanalysis’ NMReady™ is a highly functional NMR spectrometer on smallest size scale being therefore an excellent complement to our microreactor technology. The chemical reactions selected together with Hansa Fine Chemicals will prove industrial relevance and benefit to fine chemicals industry.”
