Access to da Vinci European BioBank for biological (both human and non-human) sample storage and retrieval.
Spectrometers operating at field strengths ranging from 400 to 950 MHz and from 0.01 to 50 MHz. The high field instruments are equipped with cryoprobes and/or with a variety of special probes which make them unique for the structural and dynamical characterization of high molecular weight proteins, paramagnetic systems and unfolded or partially unfolded states. In-cell NMR can be used to follow protein folding and processes that are at the basis of mitochondrial function.
A 700 MHz WB and a 850 MHz WB instruments, and a narrow bore operating at 600 MHz. These instruments are ideal for the atomic level characterization of insoluble material like large protein aggregates and fibrils. At CERM-CIRMMP an innovative approach has been developed, to study soluble macromolecules, aggregates or prefibrillar oligomers by sedimenting them directly in the NMR rotor by means of exploiting its centrifugal force.
Three-channel instrument equipped with TCI cryoprobe, TXI RT, TBO RT and BBI RT probes.
9.43 GHz (X-Band, ElexSys E 500) and 35 GHz (W-Band, ElexSys E 580E), with low temperature ancillary equipment.
Two-channel instrument equipped with BBO RT, BBI RT, 1H selective high power probes.
For measuring batch samples or in-flow samples (FPLC coupling).
Four-channel instrument, equipped with a TXI cryoprobe, a QXI RT probe and a high-power probe for the study of fast-relaxing systems and MAS accessories for solid state studies, with 1.3 mm, 1.3 mm and 3.2 mm triple resonance probes.
