for a 400 MHz NMR system. Southern Illinois University Carbondale is seeking bids for a NMR system to meet the following minimum specifications. NMR magnet to include:

  • 9.4 Tesla (1H @ 400 MHz) Wide Bore (WB, 89 mm) Actively Shielded (AS) Magnet. AS feature is required to minimize magnet footprint of NMR magnet
  • Liquid He hold time of at least 150 days
  • Magnet to be suspended on pneumatic vibration stabilization system
  • Shim stack for magnet, must have at least 23 channels, and to be able to work with corresponding shim power supply w/NMR spectrometer
  • Must include meters for measuring cryogen levels
  • Must include liquid He transfer line

NMR Spectrometer, to include:
  • Two channel (XY or dual full-band configuration) NMR spectometer
  • Both channels must be able to generate (low power) resonant pulsed rf radiation that can reach nuclei from 1H(400MHz) to below 131Xe(<10 MHz)
  • One channel must cover from 1H down to 13C and the other from 19F down to 131XE in a 9.4T field
  • Spectrometer must be modular in design and expandable to a third broad band rf channel
  • Must be able to apply modulated high-power rf pulses on two channels simultaneously
  • Must be able to acquire NMR signals (FIDs) from both channels simultaneously
  • Must be able to quantitatively compare NMR signal strengths from different experiments with different gain settings, pulse tipping angles, signal averages etc
  • Must have receiver bandwidth of at least 3 MHz and configured for solids-level experiments and rf power
  • All components to be able to handle high power (~1000W)
  • PC or workstation for operating the spectrometer, including acquiring and pre-processing data
  • Must include NMR acquisition software for spectrometer, including an object-oriented NMR pulse-programming package
  • Computer to be network ready
  • Delivery and installation to be included in price

Multiple contracts may be awarded from this request for quotation, if deemed in the best interest of the University.
