MR Solutions wins Made in the South East Award for Innovation


Guildford based MR Solutions’ helium-free preclinical MRI imaging scanners won the Innovation Award at the Made in the South East Awards evening held at the Hilton Hotel Gatwick in November 2016. These prestigious awards are open to manufacturing companies across the south east with the finalists automatically shortlisted for the national Made in the UK 2017 awards.

MR Solutions is the only company in the world to offer a range of commercially available preclinical MRI imaging scanners from 3T to 9.4T (T is for Tesla – the power of the magnet) which does not require liquid helium. These scanners, which are the size of a desk, can be wheeled into a laboratory whereas previous helium cooled models usually need their own room and substantial building modifications. MR Solutions is now recognised as the world leader in preclinical scanning.

The Made in the South East Award for Innovation is awarded to the manufacturing company that has generated a substantial commercial benefit from an innovative product or process designed and manufactured in their region.

Researchers, primarily from universities and research laboratories across the world use MRI for an extensive range of applications in medical, food, industrial and commercial research.

David Taylor, CEO, at MR Solutions was presented with the award by Tony Hyams-Parish, Partner and Head of Employment at law firm Rawlison Butler which sponsored the award. David said: “It is a great honour to receive this award along with the recognition which goes with it. My team has worked hard to develop a compact preclinical MRI imaging system which offers state of the art imaging at a smaller capital outlay than previous technology.”
