Services Provided by Minnesota NMR Center
Take advantage of the MNMR Center’s metabolomic analysis capabilities.
Want to send samples to be analyzed by experts?
Our knowledge in NMR development, data aquisition and analysis is at your fingertips.
With two state-of-the art 700 MHz NMR instruments designed specifically for metabolomics analysis and equipped with 5 mm and 1.7 mm TCI cryoprobes, as well as autosamplers that can queue up to 480 samples at one time in controlled temperature conditions, the MNMR center is well-equipped for high throughput metabolomic analysis.
Researchers may send samples to be analyzed by MNMR Center staff or aquire their own data using the Center's equipment. With MAS technology, solid tissue samples may be analyzed as well.
As analyzing the data gathered from an NMR spectrometer may be difficult, the MNMR Center has partnered with Chenomx, Inc. in Edmonton, Canada to offer professional analysis of metabolomics data gathered here. MNMR Center users will enjoy the following benefits from this association:
-Discounted spectra analysis
-Search and quantitation of up to 300 metabolites.
For those researchers without NMR experience that would like to take advantage of all of the research opportunities this vital technology provides, the MNMR Center can set up experiments and collect data on your behalf. Whether an internal or external, academic or industrial prospective user, the MNMR Center has a data acquisition option for you.
Typically, data interpretation and analysis are not included in a standard service sample. However, if you are interested in assistance with spectra analysis or collaborating with an MNMR Center staff member, this can be discussed on a case by case basis.
If you’d like to take advantage of NMR technology in your research but are uncertain how to best apply these methods to your research, MNMR Center Staff have extensive experience in NMR development and application, and are available for a research consultation or collaboration.
To request a research consultation from an MNMR staff member, please contact NMR staff. There you will find information on the specialties of each staff member, as well as the best method by which to contact them.
