A new detector for NMR spectroscopy that uses high-temperature

superconducting technology has been introduced by Conductus of

Sunnyvale, CA, and Varian Associates of Palo Alto, CA. The detector,

SuperProton nmr, increases sensitivity by at least four times

over conventional probes, according to the companies. Conductus

is manufacturing the probes, which will be used with Varian's

NMR spectrometers such as the new Unity Inova line (SCAN 3/27/96).
