Image of a DNP-NMR system with associated cooling and gyrotron equipment.

The 395 GHz/600 MHz Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) NMR spectrometer provides unparalleled sensitivity for membrane protein and other solid-state NMR samples. Upon addition of a stable radical species into the sample, microwaves are used to transfer polarization from the radical’s unpaired electron to the nuclei of the sample of interest, providing a 30- to 40-fold boost in signal intensity. This in turn provides a time savings of 900- to 1600-fold over conventional NMR spectroscopy.

Image of the giant Bruker 800 Magnet

Offering the highest resolution and excellent sensitivity, this spectrometer is the crown jewel in the NMR Centre's inventory. This instrument is primarily used to study the structure and function of membrane proteins, with secondary focusses including the high-sensitivity detection of quadrupolar nuclei and high-resolution applications to small molecules and soluble proteins. The spectrometer is equipped with 4 RF channels and 3 high power RF amplifiers.

Image of a white Bruker 600 UltraShield

With a high-sensitivity cryoprobe, this instrument offers the highest signal-to-noise of all systems in the NMR Centre. This instrument is primarily used in metabolomics studies, as well as to study both isotopically enriched and natural abundance samples of proteins, nucleic acids, and carbohydrates, providing answers to questions of biological structure and function. The spectrometer is equipped with 4 RF channels and 4 RF amplifiers, allow simultaneous pulsing of 1H, 13C, 15N, and 2H nuclei.
