Technical Information

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging technique used primarily in medical research to produce high quality images of in vivo systems. To track materials within in vivo systems, compounds-of-interest are tagged with materials that possess magnetic properties. These materials, as well as MRI contrast agents, generally fall into two classes. The first is soluble gadolinium compounds that act through the T1 relaxation process and are brightening agents. The second is particulate iron oxides that act through the T2 relaxation process and are darkening agents. Each type of contrast agent has its benefits.

BioPAL provides the research community with a comprehensive MRI product-line. This product-line includes standard MRI contrast agents, such as Gd-DTPA. BioPAL's Gado-DTPA™ is gadolinium-DTPA bottled at a concentration of 469 mg/ml and can be used for a wide range of research applications.
