The DRX 500 has been retired. The magnet has had an ice blockage issue for more than a year, increased costs for maintenance, and low usage. The 600 MHz was purchased to replace this system. So, yesterday evening the magnet was de-energized. A new start-up company based in Colorado, PhoenixNMR, will pack up the magnet in the next few weeks and ship it to their location. They will use the magnet to test their specialized probes.
