to avoid infections, we will minimize contact for users and NMR staff members. Therefore, as of now, no hands-on measurements on sample change instruments will be permitted. NMR staff will set up exclusively *all* samples. Tables with sample racks will located outside the NMR labs.
The following changes apply:
(1) Automation: The sample changers will be equipped and started by our staff every morning (AV300ac, AV300oc and AV499). Samples can be picked up the next day, when they are placed on the corresponding racks for measured samples. You can submit samples for automation from morning to night of the same day, they will be run starting from the morning of the next day. Please, *always* set up an electronic order (laplace), including the holder number (always select the lowest, free position). Next, place your sample in the corresponding spinner/position on the rack for samples to be measured.
(2) Operator measurements: Place your sample as usual on the sample rack for 400/500/600 MHz experiments and submit a corresponding electronic order via laplace.
We will clear the changers once per day, and set up automation also once per day. I.e a sample submitted to automation will be measured tomorrow and can be picked up in the morning of the day after tomorrow. These rules apply to all NMR lab, please do not enter the instrumentation laboratories.
Thank you for your collaboration.
