New NMR instruments for 2017

New 600 MHz and 800 MHz NMR spectrometers have now been installed, thanks to funds from Wellcome Trust, BHF and King's College London. These state of the art instruments complement our upgraded 400 MHz and 700 MHz NMR spectrometers and expand both the range and volume of work that can be undertaken by King's researchers in the NMR Facility. Our 500 MHz NMR spectrometer has now retired after 17 years of service.

The new 600 MHz NMR spectrometer is equipped with a triple resonance nitrogen-cooled probe and full automation. This will allow the Facility to accommodate the growing demand across King's for metabolite analysis of biological fluids. It is also equipped with a HR-MAS probe for studies of cells, tissue, etc.

The new 800 MHz NMR spectrometer is configured for high resolution analysis of the structure, dynamics and interactions of biological macromolecules and their complexes.

 

Background

A team of King’s College London academics led by Professor Sasi Conte (Randall Division of Cell & Molecular Biophysics) was awarded a multi-user equipment grant from The Wellcome Trust and an Infrastructure grant from the British Heart Foundation to develop a state-of-the-art NMR Facility for high-resolution and high-throughput applications in structural biology, metabolic profiling and drug discovery. The £3.1M funding, including a £1.1M investment from the College, has provided new 800MHz (18.8 T) and 600 MHz (14.1 T) NMR spectrometers with automation capabilities and builds on the existing scientific excellence in the Randall Division, Centre for Biomolecular Spectroscopy and BHF Centre of Research Excellence.
