Benchtop Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectrometer (EPR)


Transition metals play a fundamental role in biological processes, in catalysis, in materials science. Benchtop Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectrometer (EPR) ADANI SPINSCAN X is excellent instrument for analyzing the transition metal complexes and free radicals in liquid or solid. Its delivers powerful performance and extremely compact size and low weight at minimized costs. SPINSCAN X makes possible to observe in-situ the reactions generated by optical CW and pulsed illumination, by chemical additions and under sample heating and cooling.

SPINSCAN X is useful tool for spin trap or spin labelling techniques, for studies of the polymerization and degradation reactions, for alanine and food dosimetry. SPINSCAN X is affordable equipment for postgraduate research and education.


SPIN trapping & spin labelling

SPINSCAN free radicals detection

A large variety of spin traps and probes for the detection of general or specific free radical species are available for studying different properties and processes in biochemical, biological and other systems.

Bench top EPR spectrometer SPINSCAN X with the sensitivity and resolution parameters comparable to large systems make it possible the detection and identification of free radicals with high specificity.

For the measurement you need just a small samples volume (~50-100 μL) even at nanomolar concentrations of paramagnetic species. SPINSCAN X is good solution for the routine measurements in any laboratory.


Laboratory research equipment

SPINSCAN XEDU, benchtop EPR spectrometer and its educational kit, are an excellent solution for educators and students to go deep into electron paramagnetic or resonance spectroscopy (EPR or ESR) by using well-established methods.

It is a suitable unit for individual as well as groups of undergraduate tudents, postgraduates, and researchers who intended for advanced materials’ research work.

Educational Kit includes a step-by-step procedure of numerous EPR techniques and laboratory exercises

Food dosimetry

Food Radura label

If you will see the label Radura on the foodstuff it is indicating they have been treated with ionizing irradiation what is similar to pasteurization.

Irradiation of alimentary goods to preserve them from microorganisms and extend the shelf-life of foods is technologically advanced, secure and of low cost. It keeps products’ natural taste and attractiveness.

The advantage of this method is the ability to process them packaged, while the products do not form radionuclides, producing free radicals. Currently a large number of products are exposed to irradiation: meat, seafood, fruits, vegetables, cereals, spices. The dose rate depends on the product type.

Electrochemistry and EPR


SPINSCAN X and new designed disposable two-electrode electrochemical cell for in-situ electron paramagnetic resonance (EC-EPR) spectroscopy with small portable potentiostat open the gate for new analytical applications.

It is ideal for both electrochemical and simultaneous EPR measurements as it is easy handling and mounting. The electrochemical EPR experiment running under control of basic software package.

This solution can be efficiently used to study short live radicals or redox mechanism

Food science

Food science

Foods and beverages stability and antioxidant properties

Foods and drinks this days are subjects of intensive investigation, and its benefits are correlated with their antioxidant properties as well as the stability is becoming increasingly important as its essential quality. SPINSCAN X can provide such control with EPR spin trapping technique.


EPR polymers

EPR spectroscopy is extremely specific technique for studying of reactions of radiation and photo induced polymerization, free radical and redox polymerization; for mechanism of photo, radiation and mechanic destruction of polymers.

EPR Spectra of spin probes and spin labels as well are very sensitive to phase conformation of polymer solution. Process EPR Analyzer SPINSCAN X can monitor online the phase separation of polymer solution during its production.

Aging of the polymer materials caused by its structure and environmental conditions can be diagnosed by EPR spectroscopy. The process of degradation became clear by direct detection of the intermediary radicals and EPR Spin Trapping technique.

SPINSCAN X EPR spectrometer and variable temperature control system from -170C up to +550 C with window and UV accessories for irradiation deliver powerful capabilities for monitoring of free radicals in the cavity under thermal and UV treatment of polymers in - situ.

Alanine dosimetry

Alanine dosimetry

An EPR spectrometer SPINSCAN XDS meets all requirements of standard practice for alanine-EPR dosimetry systems according to ISO/ASTM considering all type of alanine dosimeters forms (pellets, films, capsules, etc1).

SPINSCAN XDS has controlling and data acquiring software to perform the validation and calibration.

The alanine dosimetry system is recommended for irradiation centers who do food irradiation, polymer modifications, medical and pharmaceuticals products sterilization, and radiation damage studies in materials.
