The NMR Service in B28 have a vending machine for the vast majority of our Merck NMR consumables. This can be found in Room B25 alongside the instrument Lagavulin.  We are your preferred supplier of the correct types of NMR tubes [Z272019-1PAK for 7 inch to use with the SampleJet on Tobermory and all other instruments] to prepare your samples in, now priced at £42.98 ex. VAT per 5 tube pack, plus NMR tube caps in various coloured packs of 100.

The following deuterated solvents are kept in stock, the prices are correct as of March 2024. Marketplace product prices from Merck (Sigma) are reviewed annually and the date of the rise will be noted on this website (2024 prices as listed below from 1st Apr 24 to 31st Mar 25). We have negotiated extremely favourable prices for the common items we buy in bulk from Merck; the prices represent a 10% saving on those of the Marketplace saving you and your PI's money and increasing the grant spend on actual NMR experiments!! Fill in the consumables request form available here (in powerpoint format) if you need anything that is too specialised, less well used to be stocked, or if the vending machine is out of stock!! The first table relates to all the items in the vending machine and is arranged in shelf order with the colour code to help you remember which shelf to select when you present your key fob. Each group has been allocated key fobs to access the touch screen selection panel and these are individually coded so that multiple grants or accounts can be used within PI groups.
