Aloe Vera Analysis - 1H NMR

Aloe Vera Analysis - 1H NMR

1H NMR Analysis provides identification and quantification of Aloverose (aka acetylated mannan or acemannan) which is a unique polysaccharide identifier of aloe vera. The technique also provides information on additives, preservatives, degradation products and adulterants.

Expert Witness and Consulting

We provide expertise on NMR that can be utilized in litigation, product authentication, research and development, training, method development.

Alcoholic Beverage Analysis

Alcoholic Beverage Analysis

1H qNMR is utilized to provide detailed chemical fingerprint information on alcoholic beverages such as beer, wine, cider, sake, mead and kombucha. The quantitative chemical information can be summarized to yield a nutrition label of the product. This provides the brewer or winemaker with detailed process information for QA/QC, troubleshooting, development, blending and labeling.

Beer   –   Cider     –    Kombucha

Petroleum and Petrochemical Products

We have particular expertise in the application of 1H and 13C NMR to petroleum products, polymers and petrochemical materials. We apply both liquid-state NMR and solid-state NMR techniques to these areas.

USP Phospholipid Analysis

31P qNMR of phospholipids such as phosphatidyserine and phosphatidylcholine in krill oil or lecithin.

Benchtop NMR Applications

Benchtop NMR Applications

We have 20 years of experience with applications of permanent magnet benchtop NMR system applied in the laboratory, at-line or in-line. We are the worlds experts in this aspect of NMR technology. We consult with companies to develop direct NMR methods or chemometric applications to relate chemical and physical properties of industrial samples to the variability present in 1H NMR acquired on benchtop systems.

Example of Fish Oil DHA/EPA application developed at 300,80, 60, and 43MHz
