CIREM is a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) of the liquid state platform.

The services offered by CIREM to private companies include:

  • Routine analyzes by 1H NMR, 13C, 19F, 31P etc.;
  • Development of specific measurement/protocols;
  • Sample preparation, implementation and treatment of measurements;
  • Interpretation of measurements, report writing and discussion of results;
  • Tutoring and user coaching.

Are you part of a (V)SME which develops all or some of its activities in the Brussels-Capital Region and do you have an innovative project? The CIREM platform is one of the approved Innoviris centres. Innovation vouchers could help you to fund your NMR analysis needs. More info:
