NMR is one of the most powerful non-destructive spectroscopic analytical techniques, which can be used to determine the structures of chemical compounds. Modern NMR spectroscopy has been widely applied in many disciplines of scientific research, medicine, and various industries. Such as: chemistry, biology, material science, medicine, petroleum industry, and environmental studies, etc. The Florida State University on-campus NMR facility (FSU-NMR) hosts 8 NMR NMR spectrometers with 1H frequencies ranging from 300 to 700 MHz. manufactured by Bruker and Varian/ Agilent. Except for B500WB equipped with CPMAS, HR-MAS and Ultrafast-MAS probes is dedicated for solid state and gel samples, three Varian spectrometers (I300, M300 and I400) and four Bruker spectrometers (B400, B500, B600 and B700) with auto-samplers are all for solution NMR. Particularly, the B700 MHz spectrometers with cryo-probe offer enhanced sensitivity for large molecules and bio-sample. The mission of FSU-NMR is to educate/train students/users, support our active researchers and build the reputation of FSU

NMR Facility Rate Schedule (Updated in Feb 2019)
The new NMR instrument cost structure is based on the cost allowing proper maintenance of facility; the followings are the adjustments discussed by NMR committee and approved by university
- For all instruments except for B700 occupied less than one day (<24 hrs): $10/h
- For B700 with cryoprobe, the rate is $15/hr.
Considering that longtime experiment can dramatically increase the instrument efficiency, discounts are given:
- Discount rates for long time and multiple days are
- $150/day (except for B700) and $200/day (B700)
- Caps for internal users’ long time run experiments on all instruments, maximum costs as follows: $800/1 week, $1250/2 weeks, $1750/1 month
2 External Users • $60/hr. on B700
• $50/hr. on B600, B500WB
• $40/hr. on B500, B400, I400
• $30/hr. on M300
