RAPID Biomedical

RAPID Biomedical is proud of being the first company to have brought customized RF coils into the market that are individually designed to the need of the scientific MR community. Thus, we are supporting new dimensions of MR research as well as clinical and pre-clinical studies. Through the high level RF expertise and attentive alliances with the MR system manufacturers we today can offer full compatibility for all of our coil solutions whether standard or customized.

We also produce serial coils to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) for their exclusive distribution e.g., a 16-channel diagnostic breast array for Siemens or interventional head coils for various companies.

In more than 15 years of company history RAPID Biomedical has delivered over 1200 different coil designs into more than 30 countries all over the world. We have thorough experience in designing and manufacturing coils from low field (from 0.2 T) to UHF human and animal scanners up to 21 T NMR systems. The range of non-proton solutions delivered by RAPID Biomedical includes 11 different nuclei (and counting). All coils are manufactured in Rimpar, Germany.


To ensure the highest technical standards our R&D department maintains close cooperations with various institutes throughout the world resulting in regular (co-)authorships of scientific publications.

The company was founded in 1998 as a “spin-off” originating from the Institute of Physics at the University of Würzburg, Department of Biophysics  (Chair: Professor Dr. Axel Haase).

In 2006 the sister company RAPID MR International was founded in Columbus, Ohio to better serve our customers in the US, Canada and South America.

Since July 2015 RAPID Biomedical and RAPID MR International are under ownership by Felix Faskerty, main shareholder of the FASTRON Group.

RAPID Biomedical is an independent, private owned company.
