Incubator Company at NJIT Develops Lifesaving MRI Coil for Small Animals

Supertron, a start-up technology company housed in the small business incubators at NJIT, announced today that it has begun developing a cryogenic coil to improve Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners. Erzhen Gao, PhD, director of research and development for the company, will lead the effort. “Eventually, we hope to see our system upgrade existing MRI scanners because our coils can enhance installed MRIs, enabling them to produce cleaner, clearer and easier-to-read images at an affordable price,” he said.
