Twenty years of working in a few specific application areas have given us insight into their problems, processes and priorities. We do our best to stay abreast of new developments in these industries, for example by discussions, reading and conferences. Our aim is be able to deliver our expertise in your language.
High-quality MRI images require a strong magnetic field that is extremely homogeneous in the target area. To achieve this high degree of homogeneity, MRI manufacturers measure the magnetic field and correct it, using special coils and/or small pieces of iron, in a process called shimming.
The ability to measure strong magnetic fields with extreme precision is therefore critical in the development, production and installation of MRI systems.
The functioning of an accelerator relies on the ultra-precise control of hundreds of magnets. Although every magnet is a single point of failure, around-the-clock operation has to be assured for months at a time, often with a lifespan of decades.
Metrolab is the only supplier of a complete range of industrial-quality, high-precision magnetometers in this extremely demanding environment.
A physical magnetic standard - i.e. a high-precision standardized magnet - is too expensive for widespread use. Instead, the field generated by a relatively inexpensive reference magnet can be measured with an NMR teslameter, and then used to calibrate other magnetometers.
As the pre-eminent manufacturer of commercial NMR teslameters, Metrolab enjoys a privileged position in the calibration and standards laboratories.
Metrolab technology is not always sold under the Metrolab label - and we're proud of it! A broad range of magnetic measurement technology - NMR, ESR, Hall, fluxmeters, ... - is available for integration into your products. Our expertise can help you optimize performance and get to market quickly.More
