The Oklahoma Statewide Shared (OSS) NMR Facility at the Oklahoma State University (Stillwater houses the recently upgraded Bruker Neo600 MHz and a new Neo 800 MHz fitted with a cryo-probe for high-resolution solution Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) studies on macromolecules. The new 800 MHz with cryo-probe was installed in March 2020. This state-of-the-art NMR instrument and the cryoprobe has been funded by National Science Foundation MRI grant (NSF-MRI) under the leadership of Dr. Smita Mohanty as PI and her co-PI team members: Drs. Andrew Mort, Wouter Hoff, Susan Schroder, and Jimmie Weaver).
NMR is an extremely versatile and robust spectroscopic method for studies of biomolecules in solution. Indeed, this is the only spectroscopic technique that provides detailed structural and dynamic information of a biomolecule in its native environment. The new instrument will allow users including faculty members, post-doctoral scientists, graduate and undergraduate students in all major academic institutions, 4-year undergraduate colleges as well as scientists working in industries in Oklahoma and the surrounding region (Kansas and Texas) to conduct research investigations. We welcome scientists from all parts of the country to take advantage of this state-of-the-art facility.
In this video, Dr. Mohanty has provided a tour of the high-resolution solution State NMR Facility that houses both 600 and 800 MHz instrument. She has also provided information on how to create an account for the external users.
