Josef Dadok National NMR Centre installed a nitrogen liquification unit for its 850 MHz NMR spectrometer
The liquification unit called BSNL (Bruker Smart Nitrogen Liquefier) uses an excess cooling capacity of the cryogenic probe system to liquify and recycle the nitrogen evaporating from the magnet. The nitrogen refill interval is thus extended from 2-3 weeks to more than 6 months. The equipment increases the user comfort and reduces the maintenance time and cost. Long measurements do not need to be interrupted to refill nitrogen anymore. At the same time, the liquid nitrogen consumption is greatly reduced. By the end of the year, similar units will be installed at all spectrometers in the Centre equipped by cryoprobes, namely 950 MHz , 600 MHz, and 700 MHz instruments. The unit was purchased using finances from the European Regional Development Fund-Project „CIISB4HEALTH“ (No. CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/16_013/0001776).
Instruct-ERIC Webinar Series: Structure Meets Function - Webinar #3
Instruct-ERIC webinar series continues on October 13 and will highlight some of the latest developments in structural biology, demonstrating how integrative methods are enabling scientists to decipher the mechanisms that underpin health and disease. Talks will be given by Bert Janssen, Markus Weingarth and Meindert Lamers.
Instruct-ERIC Best Practices in Cryo-EM Workshop
University od Leeds, United Kingdom, is organising an online training on the best practises in Cryo-EM. The workshop will be held on 12-13 October 2020.
Sessions will include presentations on best practice in sample preparation, imaging and data handling/processing, operational models in light of COVID-19, as well as round table discussions focused on specific topics.
A Celebration of Instruct-ERIC: Achievements, Impact and Expanding Ambitions
It is our great pleasure to invite you to a virtual event celebrating the achievements of Instruct-ERIC in the time since achieving European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) status in 2017. The event will celebrate the achievements of Instruct-ERIC, recognising the hard work and commitment of the consortium, staff, supporters and users, in the wider context of the successful European Research Infrastructure landscape.
