Description: Bruker 700 MHz Ultrashield NMR
Bruker Avance 700 MHz UltraShield NMR System with CryoPlatform / CryoProbe. 5-channel system for solution protein NMR with 3 probes. Original cost of system and CryoProbe upgrade approximately $1.8MM.
Date Originally Installed: 2003. System updated to TopSpin 2.1 software in 2009. Firmware updates done in October 2013.
Professionally decommissioned June 2015.
System was maintained under service contract with Bruker until 2014 with annual maintenance. Magnet helium hold times 4+ months, with helium refills every 4 months, nitrogen refills every 10-14 days.What does this bad boy cost, anyway? My guess is ~$800,000, but I dunno, it's been a while since I've been in the used NMR market.
(Anyone know the story behind this thing? Who needed a 700 MHz NMR in San Diego? Old Scripps equipment?)
