Prof. Lumata with the SPINLAB during a visit at UTSW.
The Advanced Imaging Research Center (AIRC), headed by Drs. Craig Malloy and Dean Sherry, in the neighboring UT Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) has recently acquired SPINLAB, the clinical DNP hyperpolarizer machine produced by GE Healthcare. The polarizer operates at 5 T and 780 mK with a closed cryogenic system, and has the capability to produce sterile hyperpolarized liquids for use in human studies. This is an exciting milestone for our collaborating UT medical institution in the metroplex.
