The Bruker Avance IIIHD 500MHz NMR spectrometer is capable of a wide range of NMR experiments.

Standard operation uses 5 mm BBFO but other options exists for specialist applications including 10mm BB and Dual probe options. The spectrometer is also capable of nuclear relaxation and variable temperature operation to study molecular dynamics or reaction kinetics. It can also be employed for diffusion studies (DOSY) and relaxation measurements using its Diff30 probe. The spectrometer is equipped with a SampleXpress (60 samples) automatic sample changer for medium throughput applications..
