Bruker BioSpec 9.4T animal MRI system

The Biospec 94/20 is a multipurpose research system for high-resolution magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging. The system is designed for preclinical and molecular MR imaging. State-of-the-art RF probes technology together with ultra high field USR magnets deliver high spatial resolution in vivo enabling researchers to come closer to the molecular and cellular level (molecular imaging). Thanks to its innovative modular concept, virtually any small animal MR imaging application in life science, biomedical and preclinical research can be conducted.
