DRX 500










  • 11.7 tesla/500MHz, narrow bore
  • Pulse field gradient probe, capable of tuning to nuclei from 15N - 19F
  • Used for routine 1H/13C characterization experiments, routine X nucleus detection, 1D selective experiments (APT, DEPT, NOESY1D) and 2D experiments.



This narrow bore 11.7 tesla instrument is equipped pulse-field-gradients (PFG), three channels, shaped pulse, digital filtering. Two 5 mm PFG probes, one TXI probe with 2H/1H/13C/15N channels and the other with 2H/1H/BB channels. 

The DRX-500 console was acquired in 1998 for the 1989 Oxford magnet. It was moved from BBMB to Gilman Hall in May 2014, and re-energized in November 2014. 

The instrument is located in 1708 Gilman Hall.  Enquiries should be directed to Dr. Sarah Cady or Dr. Shu Xu. Phone 515-294-5975 (Hach office/NMR lab), 515-294-4057 (Gilman NMR lab).
