Benchtop NMR

Off-topic conversations and chit-chat.

Trying to determine if looking at benchtop NMR for metabolomic studies on fruit juice adulteration is a worthwhile endeavor. Bruker, who only makes large models, has an extensive database that I believe is built on a 400mHz model which costs a lot, uses cryotanks, and is described as a handful in terms of maintenance. Wondering if a 60mHz or 80mHz benchtop would produce data that would align.

I do have a call in with them but while I'm waiting thought I'd take a chance and ask here.

If anyone has experience here would appreciate any insights
The only one we had when I was in college was a Varian 60mhz floor model about 2'x2' on casters about 3'tall.

I think 60mhz can only do Proton NMR, the 400mhz will do C13 also but those normally require liquid Hydrogen or Helium for cryo, very expensive. If you can get by with only Proton then maybe a benchtop model would work.
The past is there to guide us into the future, not to dwell in.
