Facilities & Technical details

At the heart of EMRIC is a high performance 9.4 Tesla (400MHz) Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) system, using high field ultra shielded and refrigerated magnet.

With multi channel and multi frequency electronics and a variety of RF resonators and surface coils, a range of non-invasive and non-destructive applications are provided for biomedicine, pharmacology and material research.

The magnet has a bore size of 210mm. The primary use of the facility centres on biomedical research applications involving in vivo imaging in small rodents. However, the versatility of the facility ensures there are imaging applications for material and plant science, and some industrial processes.

Sensitivity to the signal produced by specimens can be increased by the use of a surface coil. The system has a narrowband 1KW amplifier for 1H MRI and MRS, and a broadband 1KW amplifier for obtaining spectra from other nuclei such as 31P and 19F.
