500 MHz Bruker Avance DRX NMR

Our 500 MHz Bruker Avance DRX Spectrometer is our most popular instrument for X-nuclei experiments or for high- and low-temperature experiments.  It is typically equipped with a 5 mm Bruker 1H / X Broadband observe probe with the X channel tunable from 15N - 31P. Other probes are also available for specialized use.
