BioSpec 70/30

Highlights

Versatility
With the largest coil selection, a choice of gradient sizes and strengths, an open source software, and the ability to upgrade with an MRI CryoProbe or PET for simultaneous or sequential PET/MR studies, the greatest versatility enables challenging applications such as fMRI, DTI, perfusion, MR spectroscopy, MR histology, and stem cell tracking to be easily tackled.
USR Magnet Technology
Helium zero boil-off and Nitrogen free UltraShielded and Refrigerated magnet technology for reduced maintenance costs and longer service intervals.
Maximum Space
For animals ranging from mice to rabbits or for extra space for additional monitoring, stimulating, or similar peripherals.

BioSpec 94/20: The high field of the BioSpec 94/20 is particularly suited for molecular imaging. State-of-the-art MRI CryoProbe technology combined with USR magnet technology delivers high spatial resolution in vivo, enabling researchers to come closer to the molecular and cellular level they desire.

BioSpec 70/20: The BioSpec 70/20, with its full range of MRI CryoProbes, optogenetic and ASL coils, and multi-channel array coils with up to 16 channels, is a multi-purpose MRI instrument that allows conduction of a wide range of applications.

BioSpec 94/30: The innovative modular concept of the BioSpec 94/30 allows virtually any small animal MR imaging application in life science, biomedical and preclinical research to be conducted on animals ranging up to the size of rabbits.

BioSpec 70/30:
The BioSpec 70/30 is among the most versatile members of the BioSpec high field MRI family. With an inner gradient diameter of 20 cm as well as gradient inserts, it is optimally suited for research on animals ranging from mice to rabbits.

BioSpec 47/40: The BioSpec 47/40 is  the most versatile member of the BioSpec high field MRI family. With an inner gradient diameter of 26 cm as well as gradient inserts, it is optimally suited for research on animals ranging from mice to non-human primates (NHP).
