Services

Service activities at the National Biomedical EPR Center are diverse in nature and include

  • Provision of engineering drawings, advice, and, in some cases, hardware;
  • Assistance with construction of EPR and sample-handling equipment;
  • Carrying out of HFSS simulations to assist in resonator design;
  • Provision of novel spin traps and synthetic methodology;
  • Recording and analysis of EPR spectra at 1–35 GHz;
  • Provision of advice regarding commissioning, testing, and maintaining of cryogenic equipment;
  • Matrix diagonalization computer simulations; and
  • Performance of rapid-freeze quench spectrokinetic experiments.

These activities involve the entire complement of faculty and staff at the EPR Center and often graduate students.

To apply for EPR Center services, email EPRCenter@mcw.edu or contact the faculty member with whom you previously worked.

For general advice concerning EPR spectroscopy, email EPRCenter@mcw.edu or contact any faculty or staff member.

National Biomedical EPR Center Collaborator Policy

EPR Center collaborators are requested to include the collaborating faculty member as an author on any publications that wholly or in part involve work carried out at the EPR Center. Any such publications should cite the Center grant number (NIH grant EB001980) and, if appropriate, the DEER instrumentation grants (NIH grants RR022422 and OD011937).  In addition, authors should demonstrate compliance with the NIH Public Access policy by securing a PMCID number for each paper citing the Center’s support. Please contact Candice Klug, director, with any questions.

Additional Details

  • Training
    • Training is available for young scientist for up to a two-week visit, with some financial support. A new type of training for advance visitors is now offered for one to three months.
    • Principles of EPR Training Workshops were held in 2004, 2006, 2009, 2012, and 2015. They are developed to offer practical, specific training for students and postdocs new to EPR technology.
  • EPR spectrometer availability
  • EPR spectra from samples
  • Engineering assistance
