As I see mass spectrometer and NMR-spectrometer are far the most expensive things.
Is mass spectrometer also some big expensive magnet that makes it so expensive or is here going for some other thing?

It is no longer true that NMR spectrometers have to be very large or very expensive.  Have a look at this web site:

www.picospin.com

These machines cost $20K. Of course, they are not as sensitive or as high resolution as machines costing 10-100 times more, but they are still very powerful. Take a look at the example spectra show on the Applications pages of the web site. #### TheUnfocusedOne • Full Member • Posts: 103 • Mole Snacks: +6/-5 • Gender: ##### Re: cost of machines « Reply #17 on: December 14, 2010, 03:33:05 PM » It is no longer true that NMR spectrometers have to be very large or very expensive.
