EchoMRI 3-in-1

The EchoMRI-3in1™ is a quantitative magnetic resonance system that measures whole body fat mass, lean tissue mass, free water and total body water in live animals up to 100 grams, without the need for anesthesia or sedation. In addition to live animals, lipid content in organs of up to 10 grams and biopsy samples of up to 300 milligrams can be determined.

Please contact Nicole Ehrhardt, PhD to use the instrument.
