Sodium multi quantum (MQ) spectroscopy was used to record single (SQ) and triple quantum (TQ) resonances from a 3D cell culture implanted in a MRI compatible bioreactor under the strophanthin induced inhibition of the sodium-potassium pump (Na-/K-ATPase) at 9.4T. The results show a clear alteration in the ratio TQ/SQ under strophanthin influence. Due to the high control of physiological parameters the bioreactor provides, this alteration can be directly linked to the inhibition of the Na-/K-ATPase.
