MR Solution’s ground-breaking MRI systems win Made in the South East Award for Digital Engineering / Technology

Guildford based MR Solutions’ liquid helium free preclinical MRI imaging technology wins the Digital Engineering/Technology Award at the Made in the South East Awards evening held at the Hilton Hotel Gatwick on 28 November 2019. These prestigious awards are open to manufacturing companies across the south east with the finalists automatically shortlisted for the national Made in the UK 2020 awards.

MR Solutions is the only company in the world to offer a range of commercially available preclinical MRI imaging systems from 3T to 9.4T (T is for Tesla – the power of the magnet) which does not require liquid helium. These compact scanners can be wheeled into a laboratory whereas previous liquid 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 Digital Engineering/Technology Award is awarded to the manufacturing company that has best used or developed software, technology or technical processes to solve problems or add value for customers. This could include engineering, manufacturing and smart factory systems.

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

Nicky Doughty, CEO, at MR Solutions and colleagues Peter Doughty, Katie Tre-Vett, and Ed Moss, were presented with the award by John Stevenson, head of manufacturing, EMC which sponsored the award. Nicky said: “We are honoured to receive this award and the recognition which goes with it. My team has worked hard to develop a liquid helium free preclinical MRI imaging system with multi-modality capability for the best imaging results.”

MR Solutions also holds three prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise and has over 30 years’ experience and in excess of 2000 installations across the globe.
