Biochemical Nuclear Magnetic Resource

Experiments on state-of-the-art high field 400 MHz & 500 MHz NMR spectrometers

About BNMR

The Biochemical Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (BNMR) Core provides support and consultation in the planning, implementation, and analysis of experiments performed on state-of-the-art high field 400 MHz and 500 MHz NMR spectrometers.

Scheduling and Sample Preparation

Training: In most cases, the spectroscopist will train investigators in the use of the NMR and provide expertise and troubleshooting of NMR instrumental problems as needed. In a few cases, it may be necessary for the spectroscopist to perform the experiment. The decision will be made at the discretion of the spectroscopist. An additional fee is charged in the latter case.

Instrument Use: The Varian 400 is a “walk on” instrument that can be used by trained users. Users can reserve time on the Varian 400 through the U of M CTools site. The Varian 500 is scheduled by the spectroscopist. Please notify the spectroscopist of your instrument needs as far in advance as possible. Although instrument time is occasionally available on short notice, investigators should not rely on immediate access. Priority will generally be given to users who run their own experiments.

Sample Preparation: NMR sample preparation is the responsibility of the user. It is also the user’s responsibility to provide their own NMR tubes, deuterated solvents, and pipettes. The NMR tubes should be of high grade. Contact the manager for minimal NMR tube specifications and for advice on sample preparation.

BNMR is a group affiliated with the BRCF, therefore this page only gives a brief overview of their services. For more information, please visit their main page.
