Spectrometers and Data Stations Overview

There are eight Agilent/Varian systems in operation: 400 (x4), 500 (x2), 600, and 700 MHz named mr400, i400, s400, m400, ibd5, u500, i600 and v700 respectively. The Rod Wasylishen group also has three solids state instruments (presently 300, 400 and 500 MHz wide bore) supported by the Chemistry Department and NMR group.

There are seven Linux based PC work stations available for general usage e.g. d300, d401, d500, d601, and d602 (see below) as well
as remote access from PCs and Macs located in individual research groups.
