Varian 500 NMR Spectrometer

The Varian Inova 500 spectrometer uses a 51 mm bore, 28-shim, 11.7 T superconducting Oxford magnet. The console consists of three r.f. channels, each with waveform generation and pulse shaping capabilities, a Z pulsed field gradient unit, and a variable temperature unit. The available probes are a 5mm dual broadband (Ag109-P31, H1/F19) probe with z-gradient, a 5mm H1/C13/N15 triple resonance probe with Z gradient, and a 10mm broadband (N15-P31, H1) probe.

Varian 600 NMR Spectrometer

The Varian Inova 600 spectrometer uses a 51 mm bore, 40-shim, actively-shielded, 14.1 T superconducting Oxford magnet. The console consists of three r.f. channels, each with waveform generation and pulse shaping capabilities, a deuterium decoupling module, a XYZ pulsed field gradient unit, and a variable temperature unit. The available probes are a 5mm H1/C13/N15 triple resonance probe with XYZ gradients and a 5mm dual broadband (N15-P31, H1/F19) probe with z-gradient.
