High end MRI with the most robust cryogen-free superconducting magnet on the market
The nanoScan® MRI systems are equipped with a state-of-the-art cryogen-free superconducting magnet. Thanks to its translational 3T and ultra-high 7T field, the system enables high end in vivo imaging applications of small animals while having very low installation and maintenance requirements. Uniquely on the preclinical market, the Pulse Tube cryocooler is mounted on the back of the scanner to minimize vibrations thus delivering ghost-free EPI images. The system is particularly adapted for high-end MRI experiments such as neuroimaging or spectroscopy.
Reduced EPI ghost due to low-vibration magnet design
The core of the nanoScan® MRI systems is the most robust cryogen-free superconducting magnet ever built for preclinical applications. Uniquely on the market it features a back mounted cryocooler to significantly reduce conducted vibrations and to make maintenance easier.
The magnet uses conduction cooling to reach superconducting temperatures therefore the magnet is 100% cryogen-free.
The system uses a high-end pulse tube type cryocooler mounted to the back of the magnet to further minimize vibrations inside the cryostat and therefore deliver ghost free EPI images.
It’s base is a NbTi solenoid with multiple corresponding coils to maximize homogeneity and shielding thus reaching state-of-the-art homogeneity of ±0.1 ppm @ 50 mm DSV and negligible fringe field outside the cryostat.
