DCIF training can be done either in groups or on an individual basis; if you are new to the lab and would like NMR training, we would recommend you sign up for ‘Bruker Automation’ training first – this will allow you to acquire data as rapidly as possible and get you familiar with the lab setup and policies. After this initial training, you should feel free to request training on the JEOL system (which also runs in automation), or manual Bruker use, which will give you access to the walk-on and scheduled instruments. Scheduled time is useful for VT and special experiments that are best run by hand.
MS, EPR, FTIR, and polarimetry training are also done on a one-on-one basis. For MS training, you may wish to consult with DCIF staff for help choosing the best instrument for your sample type. Initial EPR training will be done for room temperature work, followed by advanced training for users who need to work at low temperature.
