One phantom, endless possibilities

Standardised design, simplified analysis

The standardised design, combined with voxel models generated directly from CAD, provides a structural reference to register acquired images to and extract regions of interest for further analysis.

Temperature Monitoring

Monitor the phantom’s temperature using the included liquid crystal thermometer. Two ports are included for inserting fibre optic probes. Contact us to see how your favourite temperature probes can be fitted to the phantom.


Multisample 120S

The Standard MultiSample120 is a 120mm diameter cylindrical phantom, capable of holding up to eight industry-standard 15ml polypropylene centrifuge tubes.


The Enhanced MultiSample120 is a 120mm diameter cylindrical phantom, capable of holding up to 24 industry standard 100 x 16mm, 10ml polypropylene vials.


The MultiSample190F is a 190mm diameter cylindrical phantom, capable of holding up to twelve industry standard Falcon BD 50ml polypropylene vials.


The MultiSample190N is a 190mm diameter cylindrical phantom, capable of holding up to eight industry standard Nalgene 30ml HDPE vials.

The phantom can be supplied pre-filled with configurations for diffusion or relaxometry, or empty for filling by the user, making it ideal either for acquisitions/technique development, or quality assurance of advanced imaging methods.

  • Quantitative T1 and T2 relaxometry*
  • Diffusion*
  • Metabolic imaging
  • Spectroscopy
  • Multi-nuclear imaging
  • Fat fraction

Pre-filled vials to accompany the MultiSample series of phantoms. Vials are filled from batches of phantom materials where the National Institute of Standards and Testing (NIST) in the USA has characterised their MR properties over a range of temperatures, and these values and their corresponding uncertainties provided as a report that accompanies the vials. The certification on the MR property values is valid for 18 months, after which it is recommended that a new set is purchased to continue having the same level of assurance.

Pre-filled vials for MR Relaxometry

For MR relaxometry purposes we offer the following aqueous solutions of manganese chloride:

T1 and T2 relaxation times are estimated based on NIST reference measurements. The actual relaxation times will vary on a batch to batch basis, however these will be provided based on NIST’s traceable characterisation. All materials contain a highly effective, broad-spectrum preservative.

Pre-filled vials for Isotropic Diffusion

For isotropic diffusion, we provide aqueous solutions of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) K-30, doped with Nickel Chloride so that T1’s and T2’s are not excessively long. These are all characterised by NIST, providing measurement of ADC, T1 and T2 at temperatures of 0, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, and 37 °C, and a field strength of 3.0 T.
