m2m Imaging Corporation was officially named in November 2006 following the announcement of Supertron Technologies acquisition of Australia based Spin Systems. The merge allowed a perfect global combination of complementary technologies and resources across the entire business. m2m Imaging was selected as the name to encompass the broad spectrum of molecules to man imaging devices and accessories the new company is developing and manufacturing. m2m has manufacturing and R&D facilities based in Australia and Ohio USA (an aerial view of the facility can be seen in the image to the right). The company global headquarters is based in Cleveland, Ohio (from 1 March 2008 - prior to that the HQ was baesd on Newark NJ).
About Supertron Technologies
Supertron was a Columbia University spin-out and was based in NJIT's (New Jersey Institute of Technology) EDC (Enterprise Development Centre) in New Jersey until 1 March 2008 - the current headquarters of m2m is now located in Cleveland Ohio. Since inception, Supertron's focus was on developing next-generation proprietary products for the rapidly growing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) marketplace. Supertron was the recipient of two major MRI product grants: a $2 million ATP-NIST grant with Dr. Jolez of Harvard and a $250,000 New Jersey Springboard grant with Dr. Biswal of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
About Spin Systems
Spin Systems was a spin-out from the Centre for Magnetic Resonance (CMR) at the University of Queensland in Brisbane Australia. As part of CMR's research, hardware was developed, including RF coils, gradients and animal/object handling systems for vertical bore NMR magnets. The CMR established an engineering group to further develop and manufacture MR hardware, for sale through Bruker Germany. Growth in sales and a number of subsequent developments saw the engineering group grow, culminating in expansion and the move to commercially leased premises off-campus in 1998. Staff at the CMR engineering group moved from the University to commence full time employment with Spin in early 2005.
