Molecular Structures Core





Molecular Structures Core (MSC)

The Molecular Structures Core (MSC) enables researchers to determine the structures and dynamics, or motions, of large biomolecules such as proteins and DNA to understand how they interact with each other and with small molecules such as drugs.

600 NMR with Data in MSC


The Bruker Avance NEO 800 MHz and 600 MHz NMR systems are optimized for biomolecular applications. Both are equipped with TCI cryoprobes for unparalleled signal-to-noise, allowing acquisition of protein spectra at as low as 10 μM concentration. The systems are capable of direct detection of 1H, 2H, 13C, 15N, and 19F, and all channels other than 2H have the sensitivity advantage of cryo-cooled electronics.

MSC consultation


Molecular Structures Core is committed to serving scientists and students at the University of Arizona. We support NMR teaching labs, such as CHEM447, NMR Summer Workshops, and regularly provide educational demonstrations to students. We also provide services and consultation to researchers within and outside of the University of Arizona, and have a wide range of experiments and expertise to match our diverse user base.
