New Agilent ProPulse System – the small footprint, powerful NMR solution for pharmaceutical research
By Krish Krishnamurthy Agilent Applications, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Applications Fellow
The need for structural analysis in pharmaceutical research and development is fundamental, and often demands high-quality Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) data on challenging samples. The system used to generate these critical results must be powerful, reliable, and easy-to-use.
The new Agilent ProPulse NMR System combines our robust NMR hardware and elegant VnmrJ 4.1 software in a complete NMR system solution. The ProPulse system provides a broad range of new features created to simplify and improve NMR experiments, while helping researchers better understand their findings.

Fully automated from sample to spectrum
The Agilent ProPulse NMR System delivers the highest quality data, providing unmatched speed and reliability from an ultra-compact footprint. The extensive experimental library found in VnmrJ software, coupled with robust and linear ProPulse hardware, ensures the best possible data through an automated, intuitive workflow. Powerful pulse sequences, such as band-selective 1D and 2D experiments, and PS1D (PureShift 1D), as well as advanced techniques, including non-uniform sampling (NUS) and NMR in fully protonated solvents, are all standard and fully automated. Figure 1 captures the power of a broadband homonuclear decoupling experiment that results in simple, and easily interpreted, spectra as the basis for field independent database generation.
Simplify your workflow and get high-quality data
Powerful, user-focused Agilent VnmrJ software helps to generate results quicker than ever before by enabling complex NMR experiments to be run with ease. Compared to traditional NMR workflows, VnmrJ increases productivity by reducing the amount of work required to get high-quality data (Figure 2).
Accelerated results with sample to spectrum customization
Accelerating pharmaceutical research and development requires flexibility, speed and unambiguous results, despite evolving questions and problems, and the complexity of multiple teams working on them. Fast and truly reliable task-oriented results depend on the seamless customizability of a robust, user-friendly hardware platform. The Agilent ProPulse NMR System lets users customize default experiment protocols to suit their unique needs and combine default or custom experiment protocols to generate a new study – all with the click of a button (Figure 3).
