- ¹³³Cs NMR is a valuable tool for non-invasive analysis of biological systems, where chemical shift and relaxation properties report on changes in the physical environment. Hyperpolarization can increase the liquid-state ¹³³Cs NMR signal by several orders of magnitude and allow real-time monitoring of physical changes in cell based systems.
