The Chemical and Biophysical Instrument Center (CBIC) houses a variety of scientific instruments used for characterization and structure elucidation of chemical and biophysical samples. Our dedicated staff maintains the machines and is always looking to bring improvements to the center. We also offer training in the operation of the instruments.
The CBIC's instruments reside in Kline Chemistry Lab (255 Prospect St., New Haven, CT) rooms 3 and 7 and the Chemistry Research Buliding (225 Prospect St.) room 100, with offices in CRB 100, and KCL 3 and 8. Please refer to our floor plans for general layout. If you want to know where a specific instrument is, find it in our instrument catalog.
CBIC offers a broad variety of instruments ranging from biophysical to chemical applications. We specialize in NMR, X-ray crystallography and Mass Spectrometry. For a full list of instruments, check our instrument catalog.
Any researcher at Yale can use CBIC instruments after receiving appropriate training. Academic and industrial researchers outside of Yale, especially those in the local area, can also use the instruments in the CBIC. We are always happy to begin a new collaboration and help provide access to research instrumentation to those who need it.
If you are a student or post-doc at Yale you must first obtain approval from your research supervisor and then request an account. If you are an academic or industrial researcher outside of Yale, contact Eric Paulson, the CBIC director to request access.
Runtime required for quality data varies depending on concentration and the NMR instrument used. Please refer to our Experiment Runtime Estimation tables for approximations.
For your convenience we have compiled a list of the most useful software available to you provided you are a member of the Yale community. Visit our Research Software Collection page to browse and download. You will be asked to sign in with your netID credentials.
