Facilities and Centers
Users can be trained in the use of a Beckman XL-I analytical ultracentrifuge, an Aviv Model 202 circular dichroism spectrometer, a MicroCal VP-DSC differential scanning calorimeter, a Dyna-Pro Titan dynamic light scatterer, a Molecular Devices SpectraMax Gemini XS fluorescence plate reader and a a Beckman PA 800 capillary electrophoresis system with LIF detector capability.
The DCIF is the shared instrument facility for the Chemistry Department located in the sub-basement (18-0090) of the Camille Edouard Dreyfus Building on the main MIT campus. We maintain an open-access lab with state-of-the-art major analytical instruments in NMR, MS, and EPR in order to support ongoing research programs, principally within the Chemistry Department.
The Francis Bitter Magnet Laboratory combines expertise and instrumentation in solution-state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), solid-state NMR, Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR), Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP), microwave technology, magnet design, probe and console design, synthesis of polarizing agents for DNP, and the development of biochemical labeling strategies.
