MAGNEtic resonance research FacilitY

MAGNEtic resonance research FacilitY (MAGNEFY), formerly known as WNMRC, is a core resource whose mission is to make state-of-the-art Magnetic Resonance instruments and methods available to researchers, providing a venue for them to pursue their projects and develop their experience in NMR and MRI methods.

Wageningen NMR Centre (WNMRC) is established in 1992, and is based on a fruitful collaboration of several WU groups (BioNanoTechnology, Biophysics, Organic Chemistry, Food Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Soft Matter, Food Process Engineering) and Research Institutes (Food & Biobased Research and Plant Research). MAGNEFY offers cost-effective access and support for training, operation and interpretation of magnetic resonance techniques for groups inside and outside WUR, including companies.

Available expertise within MAGNEFY covers applications in research fields of interest for Wageningen UR, like (agro)food, life sciences, and biobased research. For further info see .
