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
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.
