9.4T MRI

From Rodents to large animals imaging

MRS-9400 series are 9.4T Benchtop MRI system available in two bore size: 17 cm and 26cm. The system is specifically designed for rodents and large animals molecular imaging studies, in-vivo and/or ex-vivo applications. The system is provided with Powerscan software permitting access to all functions of the system for experienced users.
The MRI is a rampable magnet and can be optionally set up to 3 additional fields strength. MRS 9400 series MRI can be configured with high gradient strength, and advanced coils such as multinuclear, phased array etc…
MR Solutions MRI’s are based on the revolutionary and advanced cryogen-free superconducting magnet technology. It can be accessorized with PET and SPECT modules from MR SOLUTIONS for simultaneous and/or sequential multimodality imaging.

The revolutionary MRS-9400 requires NO LIQUID HELIUM, Dry Magnets.

Features & Benefits
  • Superior soft tissue contrast and molecular imaging capability for great visualization, quantification and translational studies
  • High spatial resolution for great visualization and quantification
  • Superior field homogeneity, minimal noise and no temperature drift
  • Variable field strength of 0.1T to 9.4T

Preclinical Applications

MouseTumorPETMRLike other preclinical modalities, MRI can monitor in vivo biological variables noninvasively, and serially track the progression of a disease or intervention in the same living animal, thus improving a study’s biological and translational relevance. MRI is without parallel in providing detailed anatomical and morphological data, for soft tissue structures. Learn more about the various applications including:

  • Brain imaging
  • Organ imaging
  • Tumor assessment
  • Disease progression assessment
  • Functional imaging
  • Investigating new contrast mechanisms and agents
  • Monitoring gene expression
  • Analyzing protein interactions
  • Determining pharmacokinetics
The System

The MRS systems are used worldwide by leading institutions for a wide range of life sciences research applications including, functional, molecular, anatomical and multi-modality imaging.

  • No special site requirements for the MRS systems.
  • Compact with a small footprint design and can be placed side-by-side with other imaging modalities.
Animal Handling

Minerve_BedMRS systems use Minerve animal handling system. Much more than a simple animal bed for preclinical imagers, the Minerve system provides a well-controlled environment for handling lab animals and plays a critical role in obtaining accurate, reproducible imaging results, while also maintaining each animal’s health and the safety of the surrounding lab environment.

How the Technology Works

The technology solution is pioneered by MR SOLUTIONS and its magnet partners.

  • Revolutionary magnet design there is no need for the expensive and cumbersome liquid helium cooling equipment.
  • Standard fridge cools solely using a standard low temperature cryo-cooler (fridge) to the required 4 degrees Kelvin (minus 269 degrees C) – needed to achieve superconductivity.
