MicroProbe Accessories

The MicroProbes works with discrete, disposable 1mm sample tubes, which may be sealed after filling. The glass tubes have a plastic, v-shaped top part attached to them, which allows for easy manual sample filling even with volumes as small as 5 (resp. 30) micro liters. The tubes may be equipped with a digital matrix code on the plastic top parts, which then uniquely identifies each sample.
Even though manual sample filling is straight forward with the 1mm sample tubes, Bruker BioSpin supplies a modified version of the Gilson 215 Liquid handler which enables the fast, reliable and comfortable filling of many 1mm (resp. 1.7mm) sample tubes at a time. Here the sample tubes are arranged in the industry-standard 96 well plate format, so that the tube racks are fully compatible with all other laboratory or storage equipment which is capable to handle this format.


The sample tubes are transferred into the magnet by use of shuttle, very similar to the well known 5mm spinners. The tube does not need to be adjusted inside the shuttle since all adjustments are made automatically inside the probe. These shuttles may be used in Bruker-BioSpin’s automatic NMR sample changers such as the NMRCase and the BACS-60 or BACS-120 sample changer.
