Varian, Inc. (Nasdaq: VARI) today announced that it has signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with JEOL Ltd., a Japanese manufacturer of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometers and components. Under the agreement, JEOL will be purchasing at least $7.5 million of Varian, Inc. cryogenically cooled probes over the next five years.

Cryogenically cooled probes (-250 degrees C) are used for proteomics and pharmaceutical research and provide 3 - 4 times higher sensitivity than the equivalent room temperature probe, allowing scientists to achieve NMR results more than 10 times faster. The agreement with JEOL is primarily for cryogenically cooled probes with field strengths of 500 and 600 MHz.

"We are very pleased that JEOL has chosen Varian, Inc.'s cryogenically cooled probes to market and sell with their NMR systems," said Jan Tschida, Vice President and General Manager, Magnetic Resonance Systems, Varian, Inc.

"In order to stimulate the continuing growth of JEOL in this period of technological change, we decided that this agreement with Varian, Inc. will be crucial for our NMR customers," said Y. Ishida, senior managing director, JEOL Ltd.

NMR is a non-destructive, information-rich analytical technique used in the fields of proteomics and genomics to identify the 3-dimensional structure, function and dynamics of proteins, nucleic acids, and other biological macromolecules. Such structural information is critical in proteomics/genomics and drug discovery applications where scientists desire a deeper understanding of the actual structure of target molecules and their spatial relationships with candidate pharmaceutical compounds.

Today, Varian, Inc. is a global leader in NMR spectrometers with an installed base of more than 3,000 systems worldwide.
