The most common types of nuclear magnetic resonance equipment are used in medicine. Sciences like radiology rely on nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to visualize body structures and make diagnoses. Thousands of MRIs are done every day in the U.S.. MRI technology is just over 30 years old and though the machines can differ somewhat in color and design, they all utilize a magnetic field that aligns magnetized hydrogen atoms in the body's water. Physicians can then use imaging equipment to see a visible contrast in body tissue. Nuclear magnetic technology is also used in chemistry to determine the structure of compounds and in the petroleum industry for exploring natural gas resources.
Find the right nuclear magnetic resonance suppliers of the most common equipment via the following resources:
1. Industry directories for both medical nuclear magnetic resonance equipment and NMR equipment for other applications
2. Sites that link buyers and sellers of refurbished MRI equipment
3. Suppliers of NMR equipment that offer a leasing option
Find a new nuclear magnetic resonance system with nuclear magnetic resonance manufacturersFor nuclear magnetic resonance manufacturers in every industry, consult industry experts and find the right product as well as the right price. Many industry directories also offer press releases, news and other publications about NMR instruments. Nearly all directories offer both U.S.-based and international company profiles.
Save big with refurbished nuclear magnetic resonance systemsBoth stationary and mobile refurbished nuclear magnetic resonance equipment and support are available from companies that have years and years of experience in refurbishing NMR equipment from top-of-the-line manufacturers such Philips, Siemens and GE.
Lease medical NMR supplies onlineNMR equipment in the medical field can be extremely expensive. Even if you don't have the funds for refurbished equipment, you can lease MRIs and other magnetic resonance equipment and accessories from nuclear magnetic resonance suppliers just as you would a car or other expensive machinery. Make sure the company you lease from will handle the installation of both the hardware and software.
- If you purchase nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) machines for diagnosing medical conditions, consider purchasing "open" units. They are about the same price as traditional units but offer comfort for patients who suffer from even the mildest forms of claustrophobia.
