Supertron Technologies Inc. ( www.supertron.com), a leading developer of next-generation solutions for high-performance preclinical and clinical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) coils and probes announced today successfully financing $3.5 million with Amphion Innovations PLC. Supertron is based in the Enterprise Development Center (EDC) (www.njit-edc.org) at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) (www.njit.edu).
