Partnering in Innovation

The result of an exclusive collaboration, the MPI system combines Bruker’s
leading expertise in analytical magnetic resonance instruments and preclinical
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with Philips’ unique strengths in medical

MPI is a completely new preclinical imaging technique with enormous potential to deliver new insights into disease processes at the organ, cellular and molecular level. With the new MPI system, Bruker further complements its extensive preclinical imaging product portfolio that includes MRI, PET, SPECT, micro-CT, optical molecular imaging and X-ray.
