Effective April 1, 2011, JEOL, Ltd., (Akishima, Japan), a global leader in the design and manufacture of scientific instrumentation, and the Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (INCJ) have formed a new joint venture company dedicated to the development of next-generation NMR instrumentation.

The new spinoff, JEOL Resonance, Inc., will allow the flow of technology and expertise beyond the boundaries of existing organizational structures through a new "open innovation" concept. A network of collaborators from research institutes, universities, and suppliers, plus an investment of 1.5 Billion Yen from INCJ is the spark for a revitalized effort in research and development of advanced NMR systems. Additional funding will come from JASTEC, the only Japanese manufacturer of superconducting magnets for NMR.

NMR, or Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, is used to determine the structure of molecules by analyzing the specific resonance frequency of the nuclei of atoms. NMR excels in the analysis of organic compounds and macromolecules. Applications are expanding beyond the domain of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food and chemistry into the emerging and exponentially growing new fields of organic electro-luminescence devices, thin film batteries, and alternative energy research.

This sophisticated instrumentation is comprised of several technologies including digital radio frequency (RF) engineering, superconducting magnets, and NMR probe design, such as the new ultra-fast 1mm 80 kHz magic angle spinning probe for solid state analysis recently introduced by JEOL.

JEOL has designed and manufactured NMR systems since 1956 and has been represented in the U.S. since 1962 by its wholly owned subsidiary, JEOL USA.

"We expect that by expanding R&D resources and focusing efforts towards producing the next generation of NMR spectrometers, JEOL Resonance will greatly enhance the long-standing reputation of JEOL's NMR product line," said Dr. Douglas Meinhart, Director of JEOL USA Analytical Products. "Here at JEOL USA we look forward to offering our customers continued excellence in sales, applications, and service support."

JEOL Resonance will also continue with development and manufacture of Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectrometers.

JEOL USA will introduce the new JEOL Resonance, Inc. name at the ENC Conference in Pacific Grove, California that opens on April 10th.
