4.7 Tesla 33 cm MRI/S System
Located at AMRIS at our University of Florida campus in Gainesville.
We are world leaders in designing and building probes and other NMR-MRI/S instrumentation.
Viewing images obtained with the 4.7 tesla MRI scanner at the Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Facility at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
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.

NMR FAIR Data: Phase-Separation Properties of an RNA-Binding Protein
17 June 2022
Evolutionary biologists reused FAIR data generated at the MagLab's NMR facility to model an RNA-binding protein in mammals dating back 160 million years and to explore how evolution and natural selection have influenced the structure of the protein. Their work suggests new strategies for improving our understanding of this protein, which could lead to improved therapies for neurodegenerative diseases like ALS.
