Home > Press > Oxford Instruments and Green Imaging Technologies announce NMR partnership: Enhance capabilities and improve access to NMR for core analysis

Abstract:
Oxford Instruments Magnetic Resonance (OIMR) and Green Imaging Technologies, Inc. (GIT) have announced an agreement to establish a strategic partnership to bring complete cutting edge Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) solutions to the core analysis community. The partnership will open opportunities for NMR core analysis to be used by technicians with no specialist NMR knowledge or training and make special core analysis routine.

Oxford Instruments and Green Imaging Technologies announce NMR partnership: Enhance capabilities and improve access to NMR for core analysis

UK | Posted on June 10th, 2011

Under the new partnership, OIMR and GIT will work together to develop new and exciting technologies to enhance the capabilities of NMR for core analysis and improve the accessibility of the technique.

GIT's LithoMetrix and GIT Systems core analysis software will be available exclusively on OIMR's GeoSpec2 modular NMR core analysis instruments, and the two companies will collaborate to develop integrated hardware and software platforms to promote the use of NMR for core analysis. GIT also operates its own fully equipped special core analysis (SCAL) laboratory, which will offer expert backup support to users of the partnership's NMR systems.

OIMR and GIT will jointly offer core analysis NMR systems for applications ranging from routine measurements of porosity, bulk volume irreducible (BVI), free-fluid index (FFI), pore size distributions and T1/T2 cutoffs, to sophisticated applications involving pulsed field gradients for diffusion studies, two-dimensional data processing, and capillary pressure measurement. Whatever the application, the software is completely integrated with the hardware, so instrument setup, calibration, data acquisition and processing can be carried out by core lab technicians without expertise in NMR.

"OIMR and GIT have been collaborating for more than 3 years and opted to formalize the exclusive partnership to take advantage of the close working relationship between our expert teams that has developed over the years," said GIT CEO Jill Green. "The new partnership brings together the best in NMR hardware, software, applications knowledge, and market understanding."
