On Thursday June 27th, 2019 at 5:00 AM (U.S. EST) Agilent Site Reliability Engineers will be working with our Network Service Provider to upgrade the API server for the North American instance. The entire process is expected to be 1 hour, and iLab customers using the API for any features may experience a decrease in performance during this time. More information can be found on the iLab Status Site. For any questions, please contact iLab Support at or by clicking on the 'Help' link at the top of your account page.

High Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging Facility (Huck)

Overview of Services

Initially established as the Huck Institutes Magnetic Resonance Centre in 2005, the High Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Facility consists of an Bruker 7 tesla Biospec ( AVANCE III HD) and an Agilent 14.1 tesla vertical microimaging sytem for in vivo imaging, MR microscopy, and MR spectroscopy.

Both systems have four receiver channels and can acquire X-nuclei signals.

Next to the scanner rooms are animal preparation suits. Each suite has a surgical area equipped with a Summit Anesthesia System, a down/back draft table, a fume hood, and a small animal monitoring system from SAII for ECG, breath, temperature, and blood oxygenation observations. Animal housing is available on the same floor as the MRI systems. Furthermore, we have access to a Bruker 850US 20 tesla system with one of the world's highest magnetic field strengths available to MRI.

The system is housed in the Lloyd Jackman Laboratory in the Chemistry Department. An electronics suite (right now in a restructuring process) is also available to create the optimal RF resonator for each project.
