All members of the UCLA community may use the NMR and EPR spectrometers after training by the Magnetic Resonance Laboratory personnel. If you are not a member of the Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry you'll need to request a recharge account prior to use of the spectrometers (Recharge Application).Our
training sessions cover only what is needed to efficiently use the current equipment, and its associated software (we do not cover NMR theory). We ask that you take training shortly before using a certain instrument.
Training You'll Need to Take:
- For routine NMR usage: take the “Automation using the Sample Changer”. We also recommend that you take the "Routine Data Processing" training (you can take these training in any order).
- If you only want to process data acquired with the sample changer, take only the "Routine Data Processing" training. You should consider getting your own copy of TopSpin.
- If you want to learn to acquire data manually, you must practice using TopSpin for data processing, and take a test (download installation direction, and study guides here; email: firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your test).
- Read our safety information before attending your first training session.
