Avance 800MHz SB NMR Spectrometer for Solids/Liquids

Instrument types

The newly acquired Bruker AVANCE III Ultrashield Plus 800 MHz (18.8T) narrow bore (54mm) spectrometer is available for both solid-state and solution-state NMR experiments per request.

This user friendly machine uses Bruker SampleCase - a 24 sample, waist level, random-access, automation system for sample loading.

800 MHz Solid-state NMR probes:

  • a 3.2mm Tri-Gamma HXY triple resonance MAS probe (max. speed 24kHz)
  • a 1.8mm HX double resonance MAS probe (max. speed 50kHz)

800 MHz Solution-state NMR probes:

  • Bruker TXI HCN cryoprobe with PFG, 5mm
  • Temp: 0 to 80C
  • Four channels: 1H, 13C, 15N, and lock (2H)
  • Best for 1H and 13C direct detection, and 13C and 15N indirect detection.
  • Optimized for biomolecular NMR
  • Both 1H and 13C channels are cryogenically enhanced. 13C sensitivity is ~8-10X of that on NMR500. The cryogenically-enhanced 13C channel on the cryoprobe makes this instrument the most sensitive on campus for direct 13C detection.
  • Bruker triple resonance 1H{13C/15N} probe with PFG, 5mm
  • Four channels: 1H, 13C, 15N and lock (2H)
  • Best for 1H direct detection and indirect detection of 13C and 15N
  • Bruker HCP probe with PFG, 5mm
  • Best for 1H and 31P direct detection

Main Features of Bruker SampleCase:

  • Convenient sample access at desk height
  • Safe operation on the side of the magnet
  • 24 easily accessed sample positions
  • Random access for sequential- or batch automation
  • Unique manual push-button sample exchange
  • Supports all common sample-tubes in spinners or shuttles
  • Compatible with MAS and Cryofit
