Facilities and equipment in the centre

NMR

The centre houses Bruker Avance III HD 800 MHz and 600 MHz (x2) spectrometers.

The 800 and one 600 are equipped with triple-resonance cryoprobes, while another 600 is equipped with a bioSolid probe.

The 800 also benefits from a SAMPLEJET with cooling. All spectrometers are controlled by Linux computers running Bruker Topspin 3 software.

Computing

A computing suite is situated next door to the magnet room hosting a number of Linux workstations. The machines run a variety of software for NMR data processing, analysis and structure calculation, including NMRPipe, Topspin, NMRView, the CCPNMR suite, CNS, ARIA and HADDOCK.

Sample Preparation

The facility is equipped with a small wet laboratory for NMR sample preparation and manipulation, including a class II microbiological safety cabinet.

Mass Spectrometry

The CFNMR centre also hosts the Waters Mass Spectrometry laboratory, equipped with Waters UPLC-QTOF Premier and QTOF Micro instruments. This is operated independently of the CFNMR centre, by Biomolecular Medicine.
