Instrumentation

There are 8 spectrometers within the Minnesota NMR Center, available for use by both internal and external researchers. If you prefer, one of our specialized managers can operate the spectrometer for you, at a rate of $100/hour. More information on services available here. Training is also available. Visit our Training page for more details.
