nance (NMR) spectrometers and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems to the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland. The instruments will form the core of the new NanoBioMedical Centre, a multidisciplinary unit supporting master’s and docto- ral research programs in nanoscience and nanotech- nology.
The multi-system sale includes several NMR systems at 400 MHz, 600 MHz and 800 MHz. In addition, the center will be acquiring an Agilent 9.4 Tesla MRI system. Each of these systems will be equipped with the new Direct Drive 2 console, configured as a sin- gle platform to support a broad suite of applications for both NMR and MRI. The 9.4 Tesla ultra-high field MRI magnet enables greater resolution and sensitivity for the in vivo visualization of biological structures and processes.
