In 1956, the first JNM-1 NMR instrument was released by JEOL (at that time, Japan Electron Optics Laboratory Co. Ltd.) and since then, the company has achieved many NMR industry firsts, including:
1972World’s first light pen operation.
1979Superconducting magnet with a resonance frequency of 200 MHz.
1981World’s first full automatic spectrometer.
1985World’s first auto-tuning unit and auto-tune probe, enabling completely remote operation.
2001World’s first spectrometer supporting 10 RF channels.
2013World’s first practical NMR instrument that does not require liquid helium refills.
2017World’s first liquid NMR probe switchable between single tune and dual tune mode without compromising NMR performance.
Today, we take great pride in the long-term stability of our organization and employees who help make JEOL a valuable partner. JEOL customers not only acquire an instrument that will be of value for many years, they forge a relationship with an organization that will be a lifelong resource for their laboratory, FAB, and business challenges.
