The McDermott group has access to a large array of spectrometers.

The lab is equipped with 3 Varian magnets of 7.0 Tesla, 9.4 Tesla and 14 Tesla, with MAS probes ranging from 4 mm to 1.6 mm diameters, including a 3.2 mm BioMAS probe and broad-band 3-channels probes.

The group has also access to the spectrometers of the chemistry departement, including a 9.4 Tesla Bruker magnet equipped with a 3-channels 3.2 mm pulse field gradient probe.

Columbia is also part of the New York Sructural Biology Center, a consortium of 10 academic research institutions with unrivaled facilities for NMR, but also Cryoelectron Microscopy and X-Ray cristallography. As members of the NYSBC, the McDermott group has access to 750 MHz and 900 MHz spectrometers equipped with a variety of MAS probes, including a 3.2 mm EFree probe and a 1.3 mm fast-spinning probe. The NYSBC is currently acquiring a 600 MHz spectrometer equipped with a gyrotron for Dynamic Nuclear Polarization.
