BioSpec Maxwell

BioSpec Maxwell MRIs take innovation to the next level with automated self-supervision in a compact easy to site liquid cryogen filling-free MRI

Intelligent MRI

In a small footprint

Maxwell Magnet Technology
No liquid helium filling combined with 3 Tesla, 7 Tesla, and 9.4 Tesla field strengths
Push button auto-cooling and auto-charging for maximum uptime
Small footprint, self-shielded magnet for maximal siting possibilities in small and/or BSL areas

BioSpec Maxwell MRIs recreate preclinical MRI, taking operational ease of use to a new level. Cutting-edge autonomous instrument control continually self-regulates instrument parameters to their optimal state, providing a completely new ownership and imaging experience.

The BioSpec Maxwell MRI’s innovative Maxwell magnet technology eliminates the need for liquid helium filling, providing long-term cost savings and making use inherently safe.

With their small footprint and minimal site requirements, the BioSpec Maxwell MRIs perfectly fit into existing lab structures, expanding biomedical research capabilities with easy-to-use MRI.

The intuitive workflows ensure highest productivity for a wide range of preclinical MRI studies on small rodents.

While this simplicity guarantees best results, the flexibility of classic BioSpec features such as the method development platform and the possibility to add an MRI CryoProbe or PET module provide users with the unparalleled versatility and full range of freedom that is needed to push research boundaries.
