BGA Gradients

High Performance Integrated Gradient and Shim Systems

High Performance Integrated Gradient and Shim Systems

An increasing number of preclinical MR imaging applications demand ultra-high magnetic fields with increased requirements to gradient and shimming technology. Bruker BioSpin MRI therefore is introducing the BGA-S series, a complete new series of high performance actively shielded gradient systems with integrated shim coils.

Superior performance on the following major characteristics can thus be achieved:

  • Ultra high gradient strength
  • Very short gradient slew rates
  • Excellent gradient duty cycle (independent of shims and gradients)
  • Optimal gradient linearity
  • Very high gradient shielding quality
  • Maximal shim strength

The new BGA-S series is available for BioSpec® and PharmaScan® systems.
