Size Does Matter (for Lab Equipment)
It's true, size really does matter when it comes to laboratory space. But a UK-based company has introduced a solution that could save precious lab space that would otherwise be dedicated to a bulky MRI scanner. MR Solutions said its liquid helium free, pre-clinical, high field MRI scanner is now available in a range of MRI, and multi-modality MRI scanners (with PET and SPECT modules) from 3T up to 9.4T. The company claims to be the only one with an installed base of liquid helium free, high field scanners. As the image above shows, the size and weight comparisons between liquid helium f...
