Bruker AVIIIHD 500 

CRL high-field NMR lab. 00.086

This is a four-channel instrument running TOPSPIN 3 equipped with a SampleCase 24 sample robot and a variety of probes:

- a 5mm double-resonance BBF/H "SMART" probe optimised for multinuclear observation, including 19F and 1H (default installation).

- a 5 mm triple-resonance TBI probe optimised for 1H observation, with additional miltinuclear and dedicated 13C channels.

The instrument supports a diverse range of chemistry projects relating to synthetic chemistry, and is shared between the NMR service and trained users.

It was funded as an intrument upgrade by the EPSRC as part of the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Synthesis for Biology and Medicine.

Our nickname for this instrument is the AVX500 although the formal model name is an AVIII HD 500 and should be listed as such in any publication.
