While the methodology of pH2 production is known for decades (flow through catalyst at 20 K), its implementation in a clinical setting is rare (none is known to us), but key if pH2 hyperpolarization is to enter life sciences. Here, we present the safety concept, experimental setup and quality assurance to run a pH2 production unit in hospital.
