Instruments

KU Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Laboratory consists of eight NMR instruments and one Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) whose capabilities extend from small molecules to isotopically-enriched proteins, solids, and flow samples.   There are several laboratories spread out between both the main and west sections of the campus. These laboratories occupy more than 2000 square feet in Malott Hall, Shankel Structural Biology center (SBC), McCollum Laboratories and Gray-Little Hall Integrated Science Building (ISB).
