Our current NMR Suit is beyond its lifetime. Scion are looking to upgrade it’s NMR Suite to 500 MHz Solid State NMR and 600 MHz Solution State NMR both fitted with a multinuclear probe and autosampler.

What we need
We need a long-term solution with increased sensitivity (and lower detection limits) superior to our current 200 MHz Solid State and 400 MHz Solution State NMR’s. Ideally with an increase in resolution of at least 50%. This means that we can visually depict and identify more compounds in complex mixtures e.g., in metabolomic samples.

What we don’t want
We do not want to have to re-purchase after a few years because spare parts are not accessible.

Why should you register your interest?
As a Crown Research Institute, Scion is in this for the long haul. We expect any relationship we build with you as a supplier to be long term and we will rely on you to maintain the highest standards of technical support for this critical infrastructure. As our NMR supplier you will play a vital part in supporting Scion to be one of the best organic analyses and metabolomics suites in New Zealand.

This is a Two-Step Procurement Process
a. The first step, being this open ROI process; and
