According to Sir Paul Callaghan, magnetic resonance (MR) microscopy is defined as MR imaging where resolved volume elements are smaller than (100 µm)3. Various projects carried out at our 17.6T and 11.7T microscopy systems operate below this resolution. Typical samples are "large" embryos and fetuses (~45mm), insects (~5mm) and even single cells (~1mm and smaller):

  • Developmental biology
  • Insect morphology
  • Single cell imaging
  • Tissue samples
