9.4T MRI

The Bruker 9.4T horizontal bore scanner is a dedicated system for small animal studies. The higher sensitivity produces greater spatial and/or temporal resolution from the 9.4T magnet, and is critical for in vivo animal imaging.


Main advantages of this system include:

  • Actively-shielded superconducting wide-bore magnet with 9.4 T field strength
  • Bore diameter of 30 cm
  • Gradient strength of 734 mT/m and Max slew rate of 3670 T/m/s
  • Linearity 13/ 10 cm DSV: < ± 3%, < ± 2%
  • ParaVision® software package provides a framework for multi-dimensional MRI/MRS data acquisition, reconstruction, analysis and visualization
  • Numerous ready-to-use MRI methods and sequences available
  • Small animal anesthesia and monitor system available

Various coils are available for different MR studies, including:

  • 35mm QuadTransceiver mouse coil
  • 25mm QuadTransceiver mouse coil
  • 150mm QuadTransceiver volume coil
  • 4-channel phase array coil with 72mm Transmitter volume coil
  • 1H/13C double-tuned Linear surface Transceiver coil
  • 1H/31P double-tuned Linear surface Transceiver coil
  • 1H/17O double-tuned Linear 43mm Transceiver rat coil
