Nonlinear Dynamics has released its next generation Phoretix 2D analysis products, including new versions of Phoretix 2D Evolution and Phoretix 2D Expression.

The updated Phoretix 2D Evolution includes CSA technology for analyzing multiplexed 2D gels. This new feature allows the user to analyze any type of gel, regardless of the staining methodology used, within one single product, the company said. The new version of Phortetix 2D Evolution also provides an additional editor license for off-line data review which extends user analytical processing power.


Oxford Instruments Superconductivity announced this week that it has manufactured the world’s first 22.31 Tesla, 950 MHz NMR magnet system for use in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The magnet system will be delivered to Oxford University’s department of biochemistry in May 2005.

“The installation of the 950 MHz system to the NMR protein structure group at Oxford University will significantly improve resolution and sensitivity,” said Chris Russell, director at OIS.

The company also plans to develop a 1 GHz NMR magnet.
