Hasselblad laboratory - our facilities
The Swedish NMR Centre is located in the Hasselblad laboratory, which is spacious and suitable for our activities.
The laboratory has a central location with respect to the natural scientific and medical activities of the university. Apart from the 500 m2 main NMR hall, the laboratory houses a conference room, a small wet lab, a lecture hall and several offices.
The NMR hall
The Swedish NMR Centre has one of the world’s best equipped NMR facilities. There are seven spectrometers and all are made up of superconducting magnets cooled using liquid helium and have advanced detectors for a wide range of applications.
The instrument park comprises one 500 MHz spectrometer, three 600 MHz spectrometers, one 700 MHz spectrometer, two 800 MHz spectrometers and one 900 MHz spectrometer. The spectrometers are all equipped with pulsed field gradient triple resonance probes, primarily suitable for biological spectroscopy, but a variety of probes, e.g. flow probe, MAS probe for solid state, inverse detection probes, diffusion probes, are also available. The 900 MHz instrument is equipped with a cold-probe, creating a system with unsurpassed sensitivity and resolution.
The small wet lab at the NMR Centre offers essential functionality for supporting sample handling and prepataration of NMR samples. Pipettes, a fume hood and lyophilization equipment are available for all users. For metabolomics applications, two liquid handling robots are use, a Bruker SamplePro L and an Agilent Bravo system. For protein purification, a Bio-Rad NGC chromatography system is available.
