Bruker’s proprietary superconducting joint technology for high areas guarantees the cheapest drift prices. Moreover, initial magnet rigging costs at set up are reduced. The tiny Ascend cryostat size also decreases cryogen consumption, making the new magnets even more cost-effective to maintain. Prof. Tai-Huang Huang at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences of the Academica Sinica in Taipei, TW stated: ‘As the recipient of the first 850 MHz Ascend magnet installed beyond Bruker, we are extremely happy with the quality of the magnet and the simple installation. This fresh high field core capacity will greatly enhance our research possibilities in structural biology and biomedical sciences.
