SCIENTIFIC SERVICES

The Park offers a truly comprehensive range of highly specialised services. In fact, it has one of the widest ranges of scientific services of any science park in the UK.  

 

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

Both walk-up (500MHz) and research class (500MHz and high-field 700MHz with cryoprobe) NMR facilities are available to support your research programmes. These are expertly managed by Science Services Manager, Dr.Neil Jones. In addition, specialist knowledge and expertise are also on hand for method development, data interpretation and training.

You can look forward to not just having direct access to all the facilities you need, but also expert support and advice to make the very most of them.
