Powerful Imaging Tool Unveiled
“The addition of cutting-edge NMR technology is an important investment as we continue to build the infrastructure in this world-class research facility,” said President Jackson. “This state-of-the-art equipment is already attracting new researchers to Rensselaer who are working at the forefront of discovery in basic and applied health research.”
“The Capital Region, particularly RPI, is a 21st-century leader in cutting-edge biotechnology and life sciences research, and today’s announcement certainly bolsters that reputation,” said Bruno. “The new nuclear magnetic resonance equipment will dramatically improve the ability of doctors and researchers to better understand and treat diseases that affect the lives of thousands of people, giving us yet another tool in the battle to cure them once and for all.”
The new Bruker Biospin 800 MHz is currently the most sensitive and powerful NMR spectrometer in upstate New York. It joins a 600 MHz unit obtained last year for Rensselaer’s developing NMR facility.
