Spectrometers

We offer access to seven NMR spectrometers with Oxford Instruments and Bruker magnets (500-900 MHz) and Varian (now Agilent) and Bruker consoles for protein structure determination, ligand screening and metabolic profiling.

Galadriel is attached to OIMBL's HypersenseTM system for dynamic nuclear polarization experiments.

The magnet names are derived from books by J.R.R. Tolkien, who lived in Birmingham from 1895 to 1911, staying in the nearby neighbourhoods of Edgbaston, Moseley, Sarehole and King's Heath.
