NMR - MRI/S techniques and instruments are available at two different MagLab facilities in Florida: The NMR-MRI/S Facility at MagLab headquarters near Florida State University in Tallahassee and the Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Facility (AMRIS) housed within the McKnight Brain Institute at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

Working in tandem, these facilities combine unique magnets, equipment and expert scientific support with advanced capabilities for technique and instrumentation development. About 20 spectrometers and scanners are available for use with an array of solid state, solution state, MRI/S (animal and human), MR microscopy and diffusion capabilities and techniques.

Our unique instruments include the 900 MHz 105 mm bore magnet — the world's strongest MRI machine — at our FSU location and a 600 MHz, triple-resonance probe at AMRIS that appears to deliver the highest mass sensitivity of any probe at any frequency, enabling natural-products research when sample size is small or limited.

Magnet time is free and allocated on the basis of scientific peer review; we accept proposals throughout the year. While many users conduct their experiments in person, an increasing number also work remotely with the help of our dedicated staff.

HOW TO APPLY

Our magnets are open to all scientists — for free — via a competitive process; we accept proposals throughout the year.

  1. Prepare documentation
    A proposal and prior results report are required.
  2. Create a user profile
    Returning users simply need to log in.
  3. Submit a request online
    Upload files and provide details about the proposed experiment.
  4. Report your results
    Submit a 1-page report and info on publications resulting from your experiment.
