Optimising oilseed yield can bring commercial advantages and operational efficiencies. To ensure the highest yield, the amount of oil and water in seeds must be accurately measured at all stages of the production cycle, from plant breeding through commercial agriculture to milling and processing. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) provides a reliable, precise and affordable platform for such measurements.
NMR is a fast and easy technique, ideal for routine testing and analysis. Already used in a wide array of industries, it requires almost no sample preparation and no solvents making it environmentally friendly. It satisfies ISO 10565 and is currently utilised around the world to analyse oilseeds such as sunflower, rapeseed (canola) and soy beans.
Join us for this this webinar where you will learn about the NMR technique, how it works and how it can be used to fine-tune your extraction process to maximise your oil yield.
Presenter – Barry Jones, Oxford Instruments Magnetic Resonance (UK)
Barry Jones is currently Director of Business Development at Oxford Instruments Magnetic Resonance, based near Oxford in the UK. He has been involved with NMR in its various forms for more than 30 years.
In 1992, along with three partners, he founded Resonance Instruments Ltd., which developed and produced benchtop NMR instruments for many different applications and industries. Resonance Instruments was acquired by Oxford Instruments in 2004, and Barry continues to be involved in the worldwide sales and marketing of all of Oxford’s NMR instruments.
