Booking of NMR-instruments and processing computers

UiO NMR-users (and affiliated users with UIO accounts) may book time on our instruments.  On DRX 500, AVI600 and AVII600 Dirk Petersen and Frode Rise will book the slots for you. Send e-mail with your wishes.  For access to AVIII HD 800 in Oslo, AVIII HD 800 in Trondheim and AVIIII HD 850 in Bergen you will find the application form here.  Slots will be booked for you. We reserve the right to refuse access to instruments due to safety and/or competence issues. You might instead be offered paid assistance or lower paid collaborative assistance.

Booking regulations:


Bruker DPX 200 spectrometer. Weekdays: Over night experiments starts at 16.00 and ends at 08.00 the following day. Maximum booking time is one hour between 09.00 and 16.00 hours.  If no one has booked time in the period after you - when you have 5 minutes left of your time - you can book a new slot.
On Saturdays, Sundays and official Holidays there are no booking restrictions.

If you do not book a time slot on the web before using the instrument and you are caught you will lose access to all nmr instruments for 90 days.  

Bruker DPX 300 NMR spectrometer. Weekdays: Over night experiments starts at 16.00 and ends at 08.00 the following day. Maximum booking time is two hours between 09.00 and 16.00 hours.  If no one has booked time in the period after you - when you have 5 minutes left of your time - you can book a new slot.
On Saturdays, Sundays and official Holidays there are no booking restrictions.

If you do not book a time slot on the web before using the instrument and you are caught you will lose access to all nmr instruments for 90 days.

Bruker AVII 400, AVIII HD400, AVI 600 and AVII 600 nmr spectrometers under ICONNMR automation. Only short 1H, 19F and 31P 1D experiments (up to 64 scans) are allowed during day time on the AV III HD 400 nmr instrument.     2D experiments and all 13C experiments SHALL be defined as night experiments. There is open access all days when the BACS-60 / BACS-120 sample changers/ICONNMR are in use on both 400 MHz  instruments. If someone is editing the experiment list in the ICONNMR program when you arrive in the lab you obviously have to wait until that person is finished. The AV II 400 instrument does not distinguish between day and night runs. It runs the samples as they are added in the ICONNMR queue.

The AV II 400 instrument will run continuously all the time as long as there are experiments in queue.   The instrument will run the experiments as they are added in the queue.  But you cannot add more than one sample with long 2D experiments or other long experiments at the same time. You have to wait one hours before adding the next sample so other people can add their samples in between your samples. You are ordinarily not allowed to run 13C experiments (or other experiments) longer than 6 hours - you see the length of the experiment time to the right in the ICONNMR window after submitting the experiment. If more than 6 hours is indicated you have to cancel the experiment and select a lower number of scans. If you need longer experiment time you have to get permission from the staff. You should ordinarly plan such experiments to be done between Christmas and New Year and during Easter and during the month of July.

When any of the  instruments are used for teaching or is used for other special activities you will be informed by e-mail and/or by messages on "News from the University of Oslo NMR Center" to the left on this page. In addition the instrument will be reserved on the booking pages.

When using the BACS sample changers on the AVII 400 nmr instrument, the AVIII HD 400 nmr instrument or the AVI 600 nmr  instrument as well as when using the Sample Case on the AVII 600 nmr instrument you must remember to remove your samples and delete the entries in ICONNMR as soon as possible and no later than 7 working hours after the completion of the experiments. Working hours are defined as 08.00-18.00 Mondays-Fridays. Breaking this rule might result in a temporary closure of the user account for 90 days.

Somewhat restricted access
