Magnetic Resonance Spectrometers

One of the unique aspects of our department is our large array of state-of-the-art instrumentation. In particular, our department houses a collection of magnetic resonance instrumentation not found at most universities. Among these instruments are an 850 MHz solution NMR spectrometer, which was the first installed in the US and a Q-band pulse EPR, of which there are only a few in the nation. These uniques instruments form the basis of the High Field Magnetic Resonance and Ohio Advanced EPR laboratories.

Mass Spectrometers

The department Mass Spectrometry Facility is designed to support research for the university and is capable of conducting mass analysis on organic compounds, peptides, proteins, DNA segments, protein digestions, and synthetic polymers. Our AutoFlexIII MALDI-TOF MS, installed in 2009, allows researchers to rapidly analyze multiple samples using the 384 well samples tray. All levels of users are encouraged to get trained and gain hands on experience on this instrument. In addition to the MALDI-TOF MS, there is an LC-MS instrument that can be used for separation and mass analysis of small molecules and complex mixtures.
