ATTENTION ! – USERS WHO EMPLOY J-YOUNG NMR TUBES…PLEASE READ !

J-Young NMR tube users must be fully aware by now that tubes that are bent from being perfectly linear cannot be ejected comfortably and they can even cause breakage inside the NMR probehead. Most of the time, the stuck tube entails complete removal of the probe from the magnet, followed by a not so simple […]

UPDATE ! DRX499 – SYSTEM READY FOR USE !!

The probe in the system now is : BBO- 1H{X}-Z gradient.   You can use the standard shim set : stdbbo before you shim up your specific sample. The probe that was damaged due to sample spillage will take a while to fix.  An update will be posted, once that probe is ready for test.

The probe has been sent back for repairs and the older BBI probe has been put back and shimmed up. I will announce the completion of the upgrade […]
