A MagLab chemist has determined how the flu virus tunnels into cells, paving the way for new treatments.

Andreas Neubauer took the extended stay option during his recent trip to the MagLab. After all, you can't rush art — especially when it's mixed with science.

Sodium MRI Software

Software developed at the MagLab is available free to scientists for sodium MRI concentration mapping (M.L. Truong, M.G. Harrington, V.D. Schepkin, E.Y. Chekmenev "Sodium 3D Concentration Mapping (COMA 3D) using 23Na and proton MRI", Journal of Magnetic Resonance 2014, (accepted for publication).

  • MRI: A Guided Tour
    Article: Now that MRIs have been around for a few decades, patients and doctors tend to take them for granted. But these awesome diagnostic tools, powered by strong superconducting magnets, save countless lives with their ability to pinpoint tumors and other abnormalities.

This instrument is located at the MagLab's AMRIS Facility at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

At 21.1 tesla, this is the strongest MRI scanner in the world for small animals. It is located in the MagLab's Tallahassee headquarters.

The MagLab has state-of-the art facilities to conduct MRI/S, diffusion and in vivo studies at record-high magnetic fields.

In Tallahassee, we have vertical widebore magnets that are capable of performing MR microimaging for both in vivo, in vitro and materials applications. They are equipped with Bruker Avance spectrometers and widebore imaging gradients providing diameters up to 63 mm on the 21.1 T magnet.

In Gainesville, we have a 750 MHz (17.6 tesla) widebore (89-mm) system for microimaging and in vivo imaging and spectroscopy with a 600 MHz (14 tesla) standard bore (52-mm) system for microimaging. Both systems are Bruker Avance consoles. There are two horizontal scanners (4.7 T/33 cm and 11.1 T/40 cm) dedicated for animal imaging, and a 3 tesla human scanner for translational studies.

External users can utilize animal facilities and technicians at both locations.
