HRIM Core Facility

14 Tesla (600 MHz) High Resolution IMaging (HRIM)

The High Resolution NMR Spectroscopy and Imaging Core Facility at the South Lake Union campus assists researchers from the University of Washington Mitochondria and Metabolism Center and the research community at large.

The facility is capable of in vivo spectroscopy, high resolution NMR, and microimaging experiments for a wide variety of nuclei. All projects are welcome.


The cornerstone of the facility is a new, state-of-the-art 14 Tesla (600 MHz) vertical wide bore Bruker Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer.

It is equipped with a biological sensor system directly linked to the instrument for control of studies, in addition to the standard temperature control unit. The laboratory has a satellite workstation for data processing, a lab bench area for preparation, an anesthetic device for in vivo work, and a small refrigerator for convenience.

The facility is currently approved for non-survival and survival work at the BSL-1 and BSL-2 levels and can be added to researchers' protocols at these levels. Please review our Lab Safety Resources page to find links to the UW IACUC and their required forms.
