NMR Spectrometer Core Lab
The NMR Lab operates three Bruker NMR spectrometers (500, 500 and 300 MHz) and one Bruker EPR spectrometer. The new 500 instrument (2016) is equipped with a cold probe which provides 4-5 times increase in sensitivity. We are able to perform almost all NMR experiments available at the market to provide detailed information on molecular structure, conformations and dynamics. The variable temperature experiments are available. The EPR instrument can operate at low temperatures down to 4K.
The NMR Lab Manager (Dr. Alex Blumenfeld) is responsible for the every-day general maintenance of all instruments, troubleshooting, teaching new users, helping users with spectral interpretation and advising for best experimental strategies.
The UI users are billed according to the following table:
|New 500 Instrument||Old 500 and 300 Instruments||Discounts for Old Instruments|
|Employee Operated||Client Operated||Client Operated After Reaching $6,000 in Fees|
The service for out-of campus clients is provided with a new 500 MHz instrument. The pricing for private companies is negotiable. The clients may be billed either per sample ($20 - $150 depending on the specific experiments and timing) or per hour ($40).
