Trieste - Tissue NMR
The Bruker AM300 instrument is equipped with a 7.05 T Bruker Spectrospin/Oxford 89-mm vertical bore magnet and with a standard micro-imaging accessory. One 1H micro-imaging probe with rf coils ranging from 5 mm to 25 mm in diameter is used to obtain high resolution images with a pixel resolution up to 20 μm. 3D microscopic imaging techniques based on projection reconstruction are available for the examination of samples with short relaxation times. Data are processed off line on Pentium-based systems (Linux) using in house developed MRI and commercial programs (IDL, Matlab).
All the equipment of a biochemistry laboratory is available at the Dept. of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Macromolecular Chemistry of the University of Trieste. See Web site: www.bbcm.univ.trieste.it.
