Polarean, Inc., a pioneer in hyperpolarized gas technology, announced today that The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto, Ontario and The Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center have both recently acquired Polarean Xenon hyperpolarization systems to conduct clinical research in pediatric lung disease.
Polarean's technology addresses a significant need in pulmonary research and drug development. The technology produces hyperpolarized inert xenon gas, used in conjunction with standard MRI imaging to create high resolution 3-dimensional images of the human lung. his technique is a unique way to monitor extremely.... to the entire press release
The Canadian Patent Office has allowed two additional patents on Polarean’s modular hyperpolarized
gas MRI technology. This expands the worldwide patent coverage already provided by Polarean’s patent
estate of 30+ patent families, and provides the users of Polarean’s technology
with freedom-to-operate in this scientific field.
Polarean’s modular design, the subject of these latest patents, gives researchers the flexibility to use Polarean’s technology in a manner best suited to their research objectives, whether to study the hyperpolarization process or to produce hyperpolarized gas for clinical research.
