BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bruker has received an order for the first ultra-high field MRI CryoProbe in North America to be installed at the F.M. Kirby Research Center for Functional Brain Imaging at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, MD. Supported by an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) award to Dr. Peter van Zijl, Director of the Center, the 500 MHz MRI CryoProbe is part of an ultra-high field preclinical MRI BioSpec® system that includes an 11.7 T UltraShield Refrigerated (USR™) magnet and AVANCE™ III electronics. The MRI CryoProbe offers a leap in sensitivity that will enable even higher resolution imaging of microscopic structures in vivo, furthering the exploration of neurodegenerative diseases in small animals. Sharing a commitment to accelerate novel research, the Kennedy Krieger Institute, John Hopkins University School of Medicine and Bruker have signed a research collaboration agreement to develop advanced imaging techniques for future preclinical imaging applications.
