NMR Spectroscopy


Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) is one of the most powerful spectroscopic techniques. The technique has been enormously improved in recent years and continues to develop at an extraordinary speed. INFAI uses a newly acquired state-of-the-art NMR spectrometer, a Bruker Avance III 600MHz liquid NMR spectrometer (see figures below). The spectrometer is equipped with all functions required for fully automated high throughput investigations.

NMR investigations and service

Currently, the following NMR-based applications are performed in the laboratories of INFAI:

Metabo Test INFAI

This test offers a simple, standardized and inexpensive way to integrate NMR analysis of children's urine into diagnosis and clinical tests

Analysis of body fluids

INFAI has many years of experience in the spectroscopic analysis of body fluids, including blood, plasma, urine and cerebrospinal fluid

Newborn screening in Turkey

In cooperation with Bruker BioSpin and 15 study centers in eight Turkish cities, INFAI is organizing a clinical study on newborn screening for metabolic diseases

Clinical studies

In a number of clinical studies led or supported by INFAI, NMR spectroscopy of body fluids provides invaluable supporting or complementary information
