AS-1 Air Source

NMR Air Compressor

The AS-1 is an electronically controlled air compressor which provides clean dry air to NMR instruments for spin and eject air.



melloeX is a liquid CO2 extractor for naturally extracting oils from plant materials. Liquid CO2 is the solvent of choice to effect gentle extraction of essential oils.  Because melloeX works at lower temperatures and pressures, even the most fragrant oils are retained.  Alegre Science has been an innovator of this product and continues to improve its applications and operation.
