MRS*DRYMAG: Preclinical MR
Cryogen-free, dry magnet, variable field and rotating magnet
MRS*DRYMAG is the latest generation of superconducting magnets manufactured by MR SOLUTIONS. This magnet technology does not require consumable such as liquid helium for the cooling, therefore no quench pipes or valves are necessary, making the installation inexpensive and easy. MRS*DRYMAG can be installed in a limited space, in pathogen free pressure controlled room and BSL4 laboratories..
Proprietary Dry Magnet technology
Zero liquid helium is better than zero boil off
With MRS*DRYMAG technologyMR Solutions users are not the hostages of the helium shortage and its escalating price year after year.MR Solutions preclinical MR systems significantly reduce environmental impact.
Dry Magnet versus traditional Wet magnets
MRS*DRYMAG does not require major site preparation. The below drawing shows the comparison between a 9.4T MRS*DRYMAG weighing 700 kg and a traditional 9.4T WET magnet weighing about 5 tons.
MRS*DRYMAG can be installed in Biosafety laboratories Levels 1, 2, 3, 4 and in the higher floor of a building.
Variable field / rampable dry magnet
MRS*DRYMAG can be ramped down and ramped up to any field strengths within few minutes. For instance from 7.0T to 3T for clinical and preclinical translational imaging studies , to 1T for contrast agent development, to 0.5T for ex-vivo studies.
Some specific applications such as plants studies, fluid flow in porous media, agronomic research or gravity studies require a vertical magnet. MRS*DRYMAG can simply move easily from one position to the other.
