| Dr. Yuming Morris Chen, a former graduate researcher at Duke University,
shared his successful experience with Wilmad-LabGlass.
research was focusing on the theory of intermolecular multiple quantum
coherences and the applications in MRI. As happens in many NMR research
facilities, Dr. Chen did not realize that the Rf coil insert (Suprasil
cover separates coils and sample tube) was broken until his colleague
discovered debris of the broken piece. It is an unpleasant experience to
every NMR user considering the high price tag to repair a probe, not to
mention other hidden costs including machine down-time, delay in
research projects and frustration in research momentum. Wilmad-LabGlass,
well known for its precision bore glass capability, helped Dr. Chen on
the repair based on its large database of various probe inserts. A
match was quickly found and the replacement shipped within a few days.
Dr. Chen and his colleague installed the new part in house. The cost was
significantly reduced and even more waiting time saved.
research result of Dr. Chen and his former colleagues was just
highlighted here on the Physics Update section of Physics Today
(American Physical Society).
