Former NMR Facility
The NMR building of the FLI was operational from December 18, 1995 until October 2015.
The equipment had included two narrow-bore and one wide-bore spectrometer. The Bruker
Avance III 750 MHz and 600 MHz narrow-bore spectrometers were used for the structure
determination of biomolecules in solution. At the 600 MHz spectrometer a triple channel
high-sensitivity cryoprobe was running.
The 500 MHz wide-bore system features 'magic angle spinning' equipment for the study of
biomolecules in the solid state. In 2007, solid state equipment was added also to the
750 MHz spectrometer. Linux- and UNIX-based workstations for the evaluation of NMR
spectra and structure calculation as well as the required setup for the production of
isotope (13C, 15N, 2H) labeled proteins, RNA and
peptides were located next door in the laboratory of the former group of Biomolecular
