Magnetic Insight Launches 

Screen and optimize your nanoparticle directly on the MOMENTUM™ Magnetic Particle Imaging System with the RELAX particle relaxometry toolkit.

The flexibility and breadth of applications are highly dependent on your choice of nanoparticle. Performance can vary widely and influences image quality, sensitivity and resolution. Get the most out of your tracer by using RELAX for your specific application. Press Release
