GE introduces a hyperpolarizing system for research use

|By:, SA News Editor

General Electric (GE -0.1%) introduces SPINlab, a Carbon-13-based hyperpolarizing system that enables researchers to visualize metabolic activity at the cellular level using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The system simplifies MRI-based metabolic research by providing reliable access to hyperpolarized compounds in a dedicated unit.

The system enables the non-invasive real-time study of biochemical changes in disease processes by improving the sensitivity of MRI more than 20,000-fold.
