FAQ


Q: What is the magnetic strength in Tesla?

A: We use very weak magnets, only 1 T, because DNP in liquids only works well with magnetic fields less than 1 T. In turn, DNP improves the signal-to-noise ratio for one-dimensional spectra by about 400 times, and almost 100,000 times for multidimensional spectra. Therefore, the sensitivity of 1D is approximately as if we were capturing spectra at 100 MHz, and the sensitivity of 2D+ is approximately as if we were capturing spectra at 400 MHz.

Q: Can I get 1D spectra from Elegant NMR system?

A: The ability of the Elegant NMR measuring system to automatically interpret heteronuclear DNP NMR spectra on an adaptive grid completely disrupts the status quo in which 7- and 8-dimensional DNP NMR spectra, having sparsity values less than 0.1%, are very difficult not only to interpret, but even to visualize.

In the Elegant NMR system, such spectra are identified with reference to a huge database containing about 1.7 billion spatial molecular structures.

7-8-dimensional spectra can be projected onto one-dimensional slices and then visualized. We will implement this approach in the expert mode of the Elegant NMR software for reference purposes.

Q: Do we need to use external MW source for DNP?

A: No, Elegant NMR System is equipped with internal DNP source according to recently patented technology US 10773092 B2.

Q: Do you have HPLC/GC-MS inside, or how you separate unknown mixtures?

A: We do not separate molecules, we separate signals.

In classical HPLC, for separation to occur, we need the substances to be separated to form complexes with a stationary phase and the energy of formation of such complexes is significantly different. It is often possible to find a stationary phase that would orientate the substances to be separated well, but would not separate these mixtures well enough, for instance, because of the insufficient number of theoretical plates. In our apparatus we do not separate substances, namely, we orient them differently. This orientation affects the two-dimensional NMR spectra and it is possible, without separation, to obtain slightly different HSQC or NOE spectra, and on the basis of their correlations, to get relative concentration and pure spectra of the substances themselves.

The patent pending technology US 16/695,200 is fully implemented inside Elegant NMR system.

Key Idea

The ELEGANT NMR® incorporates the following advantages:
  • Several-fold reduction of component costs due to a new processing method,

  • Several-fold reduction in magnet size (US Patent: US10646722B2),

  • Detection of most to all visible chemical elements and their NMR spectra in the investigated area using an advanced synchronization processing method,

  • Drastically increased sensitivity due to dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP), needing only about 100 nL fluid to perform detection (US Patent: US10773092B2),

  • Improved spectrum quality and matching to database using an automatic procedure for well-known multidimensional HSQC and NOESY methods,

  • Drastically accelerated spectrum acquisition due to a non-uniform sampling (NUS) method,

  • An automatic procedure by AI for matching spectra to a predetermined reference database without deep understanding of NMR analysis, including in situations with different solvents, using a well-known least squares method,

  • An automatic procedure for analyzing chemical mixtures without a priori knowledge, even if the concentration changes during measurement, by using an advanced method for multilinear decomposition of spectra without predetermined references,

  • and many other useful features, such as solvent suppression and measurement of droplet size, flow, temperature, pressure, and density, that help to reduce the count of additional instruments needed for analyses.

The recently-patented Elegant NMR technologies for the production of uniform and focused permanent magnets, as well as for the creation of dual-band dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP), make possible a new generation of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometers with nanoscale measuring range. That is, one nanomole of the substance under study is sufficient for the collection of DNP-NMR spectra and unambiguous identification.

In addition, patent-pending combined NMR and chromatography technology allows the simultaneous detection of a large number of chemicals in a mixture whose respective concentrations are in the nanomolar range.

Magnet production using patented technology US 10646722 B2. Each Elmathron® device contains all the necessary electronics for DNP and signal processing, all signal transmitters and receivers for all existing non-zero spin isotopes.

The device includes 4 square meters of printed circuit boards that are fully engineered in Elegant Mathematics LLC.
Elegant Mathematics LLC performs complete software and hardware development.

Most of the components (about 70%) are from US manufacturers and final assembly is done in Germany.

Applications

COVID-19 and Lung Diseases: Express and Inexpensive Analysis of Exhaled Air by Nano-Volume DNP-NMR


In the time of the present coronavirus pandemic, we should all collectively react both fast and appropriately. The Elegant Mathematics Team proposes an easy-to-use and affordable method for the detection of COVID-19 infection and other lung diseases. The developed analyzer allows assays to be carried out in the early stages of disease, allows the prediction of disease, and can also be used during treatment to collect additional statistics, monitor progression, and improve the quality of treatment received.

Elegant Mathematics recently-patented technologies for the production of uniform and focused permanent magnets, as well as for the creation of dual-band dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP), make possible a new generation of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometers with nanoscale measuring range. That is, one nanomole of the substance under study is sufficient for the collection of DNP-NMR spectra and unambiguous identification. In addition, recently-patented combined NMR and chromatography technology allows the simultaneous detection of a large number of chemicals in a mixture whose respective concentrations are in the nanomolar range.

Fast and inexpensive testing for COVID-19 and associated lung disease is essential today. Exhaled air contains many chemical markers—small organic molecules, usually less than 200 Da—with concentrations of 1 ppb - 100 ppm, and combinations of these markers are characteristic of particular types and stages of disease. Indeed, chemical analysis of the air exhaled by a person is a well-established method for the determination of many diseases, and relevant databases have been created and are publicly available.

The key problem that hinders the widespread use of this method is the low abundance of any given constituent in the mixture of substances released into the air from a person’s lungs. For example, toluene and acetone are among the most abundant compounds in exhaled air, but still have concentrations of only around 10 ppm. Other components are usually in the range of 1-10 ppm. Furthermore, while there are many methods for the chemical analysis of gases, such as using metal oxide sensors, the most accurate is to use gas chromatography in combination with mass spectroscopic detection—which method is also very expensive.

Recent developments by Elegant Mathematics company in the field of nuclear magnetic resonance, in particular the combination of NMR with chromatography and with DNP, allowed us to create a benchtop-sized NMR device capable of conducting chemical analysis of liquid volumes up to 1 nl and gas volumes of 1 μl at room temperature with a detection level in the nanomole range.

Elegant NMR Project proposes an easy-to-use and affordable method for the detection of COVID-19 infection and other lung diseases. The developed analyzer allows assays to be carried out in the early stages of disease, allows the prediction of disease, and can also be used during treatment to collect additional statistics, monitor progression, and improve the quality of treatment received.

Considering that one measurement can be performed in a period of about 10-200 seconds, and there are no additional costs for the mobile phase, chromatographic columns, gases, etc., if the device is operated 24 hours a day for 3 years, the cost of its operation is about 10 cents per measurement.

Thus, Elegant NMR devices can be used in the place of expensive GC-MS devices for the inexpensive and rapid analysis of human exhaled air.

Such a low cost of analysis will provide for a virtually unlimited number of opportunities for conducting preventive medical testing as well as preserving health, tuning medical treatments, and thereby saving many lives.
