The Bruker AVIII 850 MHz NMR spectrometer, with an actively shielded standard bore magnet, is capable of performing both solution and solid state NMR measurements. The console is configured with 4 RF channels and a parallel receiver data acquisition system. With the ultrahigh magnetic field and a large collection of solution and solid state NMR probes, the 850 MHz NMR spectrometer covers a broad range of applications from inorganic materials and synthetic organic polymers to structural and dynamic studies of complex biological systems.

Solid-state Magic Angle Spinning (MAS) Probes:

  • 0.7 mm HCND MAS (up to 111 kHz)
  • 1.3 mm HCN MAS (up to 65 kHz)
  • 1.6 mm HFXYD MAS (up to 40 kHz)
  • 1.9 mm HCN MAS (up to 40 kHz)
  • 1.9 mm HX MAS (up to 40 kHz)
  • EFree 3.2 HCN MAS (up to 24 kHz)
  • 3.2 mm HX low gamma MAS (up to 24 kHz)

Solution NMR Probes:

  • 5 mm HCN triple- resonance TXI probe
  • 5 mm  double-resonance BBO probe
