Welcome to the homepage of the Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy Platform BNSP

In the last 30 years NMR spectroscopy has become a standard tool in biological research. The basis for this development was laid by the pioneering work of Prof. Richard Ernst and Prof. Kurt Wüthrich at the ETH who both were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemitsry (RE in 1991 and KW in 2002). In the mid-seventies of the last century Prof. Kurt Wüthrich established a high field NMR laboratory in the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the ETH Zurich. At the beginning it was equipped with just one Bruker HX-360 MHz NMR spectrometer which provided the highest magnetic field available at the time. Over the years more and more high field NMR spectrometers were added. In 2010 the lab was converted into a technology platform of the department of Biology at the ETH and named "Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy Platform" (BNSP). Today, the BNSP operates six NMR spectrometers with magnetic field strengths of 500, 600, 700, 750 and 900 MHz.
