Magnetic Resonance Imaging Services

Our laboratory features a Bruker Biospec Avance 24/30 nuclear magnetic resonance imager that is particularly well-suited for imaging inanimate objects or small animals. Our equipment and staff are available for experiments on selected samples as well as in-depth research and laboratory studies.

We have extensive experience with permeable media, including geological samples, bone, and foodstuffs. With exceptional skills in mathematical modeling and inverse problems, we are well-equipped to undertake a large variety of projects.

Contact Dr. Ted Watson or Benjamin Kohn with inquiries.
