AV500AV500 provides the latest NMR capabilities at 500 MHz to tackle a wide variety of research problems. The instrument can generate a maximum Z-axis magnetic field gradient of 56 Gauss/cm to perform most of the experiments that rely on coherence selection using gradients and selective peak suppression using gradients. Shaped gradients can be generated with the aid of Bruker Shape Tool.
