This infrastructure is based on a number of spectrometers (360-850 MHz) and provides support for NMR analysis of a wide variety of samples, everything from small organic molecules to proteins and new materials for materials science . The infrastructure is a node in the national networks SciLife Lab, SwedNMR and the Swedish NMR Centre.

Based on major funding by Wallenberg and Kempe, the NMR platform provides access to modern instruments, perfectly suited for most NMR applications, both in solution and in solid-state. Recent additions to the platform setup include a 0.7mm ultra-fast MAS probe which was installed during 2020 on our 850 MHz spectrometer and the world firstcryo-MAS probe (both for solid state NMR) installed on the 600 MHz system in Nov 2022. The platform provides service and access to all KBC and Campus groups, as well as training in state-of-the-art NMR methodology. In addition, it has an open-access policy for academic/industrial partners at a national/international level.
Please consult NMR platform personnel before booking.
We welcome applications from beginners to experts. Access to the infrastructure is based on evaluation of project applications. Access can range from solely NMR instrument time, to measurement and data analysis support by our staff, to collaborative projects. Projects are prioritized based on scientific quality and on demand of infrastructure resources.
