Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Laboratory

The Wright State University Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Laboratory houses two research instruments: (1) a 8.5 Tesla Wide-Bore (89 mm clear bore) 360 MHz NMR System equipped with a Tecmag Discovery Console; and (2) a Varian INOVA 600 NMR Spectrometer.

The 360 NMR system has various Bruker commercial probes for proton, fluorine, and broadband capabilities. This system is also used for NMR studies in vivo and is equipped with several home-built probes that can accommodate mice or rats.

The Varian INOVA 600 is equipped with:

  1. a triple resonance inverse probe (1H/13C/X),
  2. a broadband observe probe with a 13C/1H decouple channel (X/13C/1H),
  3. an Inverse Nanoprobe for 1H MAS spectroscopy in small volumes (40 ul),
  4. a variable temperature unit (FTS Systems, XR401 Air-Jet Crystal Cooler, -40 °C to +100 °C), and
  5. a Zymark XP Robotics Sample Changer (50 sample capacity).
