Laboratory staff provide advice, consultation, training, assistance and service to investigators. The staff is also responsible for maintenance and upgrades of the two high field NMR instruments, implementation of new NMR pulse sequences, and assisting local and remote users with technical problems.

The laboratory is equipped with a Bruker Avance 800 MHz NMR instrument fitted with a TCI cryoprobe and a Bruker Avance III 600 MHz with a variety of probes. It is located in close proximity to other core service laboratories in the KU Structural Biology Center.


Biomolecular NMR Laboratory


The laboratory has two NMR spectrometers capable of performing any advanced biomolecular NMR experiment. The equipment is housed in the Del Shankel Structural Biology Center on the KU west campus.

800 MHz NMR

  • 5mm, fourchannel TCI (1H/15N/13C/2H) cryoprobe for increased sensitivity and superior resolution
  • 5mm, four channel TXI probe

Bruker Avance III 600 MHz can utilize two probes:

  • 5mm, four channel with TXI (1H/15N/13C/2H) probe
  • 5mm, multi-nuclear broad band (BBO) probe for observation of 19F, 31P equipped with 24 sample position auto sampler
