The Molecular Imaging Facility (MIF) provides access to state-of-the-art MR techniques for the UA system. The facility has two NMR spectrometers one is only for solution-state at 300 MHz and one, in addition to solutions, can also look at tissue and other semi-solids, as well as powdered solids at 600 MHz. These spectrometers are able to perform a wide range range of modern NMR techniques, and are used by researchers in several departments in areas as diverse as small peptide structure determination, organic teaching chemistry support, metabolomics, and environmental samples. The facility also has 1.5 Telsa MRI that can be used for both imaging and spectroscopy, and recently added a Dual-energy X-Ray Absorptiometry instrument designed to look at lean body mass, adipose tissue, and bone density.
