Bruker AV-600 NMR
The Bruker Avance-III HD 600 MHz NMR Spectrometer is equipped with 2 RF channels, variable temperature capabilities, z-axis pulsed field gradients (PFG), automated deuterium (2H) gradient shimming, automated tune/match capabilities, a SampleCase 24-position automated sample changer system, and TopSpin 3.5. The AV-500 has 3 probes; in the table below, the default probe is highlighted in bold.

The Prodigy CryoProbe cools the probe electronics to liquid nitrogen temperatures, reducing the thermal noise. This boosts the signal-to-noise of the X-channel (compared to a room temperature probe) by a factor of 2-3. This reduces scan time by a factor of 4, making dilute 13C, natural abundance 15N, 29Si, 119Sn, and other experiments much faster.
