In the second year, a HTc coil has been fabricated and tested. The resonance frequency is within the target frequency range of the original design. The Q value for the coil is 650 and it is expected to increase when the coil is operated below 40 deg K. The metabolic and cell proliferation differences of MCF7 wild type cells and its multidrug resistant variants were studied. Some subtle difference in the spectra from these two cell lines can not be confirmed. This subtle difference may be detectable with the high sensitivity HTc probe.
