MRI and NMR studies are possible in the Biomedical NMR Facility Sebastián Cerdán thanks to the equipments: BioSpec 70/16 and Bruker Avance Neo 11,7T.
Biospec 70/16 provides anatomical images (T1, T2, T2* and DP weighted images, cardiac imaging); quantitative maps from different parameters (relaxometry, magnetization transfer, diffusion parameters, perfusion..) and in vivo localized spectra allowing longitudinal studies. We provide the anesthesia protocols, contrast agents and monitoring systems commonly used during magnetic resonance imaging.
Avance Neo 11,7T allows in vitro and ex vivo spectra from different nucleus (1H, 31P, 19F, 13C) thanks to the large variety of high resolution probes: TXI, TXO, BBI and HR MAS (to analyze intact biological tissues samples). NMR spectroscopy played a key role in metabolomics and metabolic studies.
The facility works with UNE-EN-ISO 9001:2015 quality management system certified by AENOR and is a member of the Comunidad de Madrid Laboratory Network (Registration Number 105)
