for 9.4 tesla, 800mm bore MRI System.

The system should consist of a highly homogeneous superconducting magnet (9.0 to 9.4 Tesla) housed in a 800mm horizontal bore, low loss helium cryostat. The system must be supplied with a helium level monitor and an emergency quench heater control unit, including two stage cryo refrigerators to minimize cryogen consumption and eliminate the need for a liquid nitrogen reservoir. This system is primarily intended for research studies with clinical/biological applications of NMR Imaging (MRI) and NMR Spectroscopy (MRS).
