MR Microscopy & MR Diffusion

Magnetic resonance imaging at the forefront of technology delivering stunning resolution.

Magnetic Resonance (MR) Microscopy and MR Diffusion are techniques ubiquitous in various fields of research such as physics, chemistry and biology as well as the fields of petroleum industry, biomedicine or food technology. They can provide insights of the salient physical properties of the underlying system of interest in a non-destructive fashion and visualize them as multidimensional images.

The Bruker MR Microscopy and Diffusion systems establish leading standards in the fields of MR imaging and diffusion. The continuous evolution of such fields requires the hardware to be as flexible and powerful as possible to satisfy the demands of new methods and systems to be studied. Consequently, Bruker introduced the new imaging and diffusion accessories for the Avance Neo spectrometer electronics. Cutting edge development of new hardware and software interfaces between the components, which are now identical for all Bruker Avance Neo based systems, allow for a direct exchange of methods between preclinical imaging, MR microscopy  and diffusion systems. 

The combination of the modular hardware components allows an extremely wide range of applications: 

  • MR Microscopy
  • MR Diffusion
  • CryoProbes for MR Microscopy
  • Magic Angle Spinning (MAS) with strong triple axis gradients

The MR Microscopy and MR Diffusion accessories are fully compatible with liquid NMR and solid-state spectroscopy MR systems, enabling to expand your Magnetic Resonance research into the NMR domains you require, without the cost of ownership of dedicated systems. In addition, the MR Microscopy and MR Diffusion accessories make use of the powerful shim system, developed for high resolution spectroscopy, which allows for the best possible shim conditions.


  • Full compatibility with high resolution, solid state, MR Microcopy and MR Diffusion applications
  • Flexible usage in life science and material science applications
  • High resolution shim system
  • Seamless operation of different gradient amplifiers (HR, WB, SWB)​
  • Strongest imaging (3 T/m, triple axis) and diffusion (30 T/m, single axis) gradient strengths
  • High imaging resolution using CryoProbe and optimized RT rf Coil
  • Chemical shift resolved measurement of slow diffusion down to 5 x 10-15 m2/s
  • Easy handling for routine work, full research access for experts
