Dear Core User,

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, per directives from Senior management at Partners and the Hospitals, this research core facilities will have a hiatus in their service offering. We will not be offering service till we are advised to resume operation.

Please stay safe in this challenging time and we look forward to working with you in the future.

Physiological NMR Laboratory Core


The Physiological NMR Core currently provides the following services:

1. Simultaneously measure high energy Simultaneously measure high energy phosphates, inorganic phosphate, intracellular pH, Glucose uptake rate, ATP and phosphocreatine (PCr) synthesis rates in perfused organs (hearts, livers and skeletal muscles, etc) with 31P-NMR spectrometry

2. Simultaneously measure cardiac function with cardiac energetics in Langendorff system with 31P-NMR spectroscopy

3. Track substrate utilization/metabolism with 13C-NMR spectroscopy

4. Determine of intracellular Na content with 23Na-NMR spectroscopy.

5. Simultaneously measure following 27 metabolites of cellular redox and energy state in a single sample with HPLC ATP/ADP/AMP/Adenosine, Xanthine/Hypothanxine/Inosine/IMP, GTP/GDP/GMP, CTP/CDP/CMP, UTP/UDP/UMP, Malonyl-CoA/Acetyl-CoA/CoASH, NAD/NADH, NADP/NADPH, GSH/GSSG/Ascorbic Acid
