Project FMMD-MPI

Frequency mixing magnetic detection (FMMD) for Magnetic particle imaging (MPI)

This project is conducted jointly with ETRI, Korea

Project FMMD-MPI
Cooperation with ETRI

With the novel magnetic particle imaging (MPI) technique originally developed by B. Gleich and J. Weizenecker (Philips Hamburg), 3D images of the distribution of magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) can be acquired. MNP can be functionalized with antibodies so that they specifically bind to proteins, cells, bacteria or viruses and act as markers. Recently, an MPI imaging system has been built at ETRI which is based on Frequency mixing magnetic detection (FMMD) developed at FZJ. Our aim is to further develop and evaluate this novel magnetic imaging modality regarding its perspectives for medical imaging.

Principal Investigator at FZJ: Dr. Hans-Joachim Krause

Partner: Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), Daejeon, Korea

Principal Investigator at ETRI: Dr. Hong, Hyobong

Further information: Both partners finance their research individually. Any new IP is owned by the partner who generated it.
