The balloon-borne Isotope Matter-Antimatter Experiment (IMAX) was flown from Lynn Lake, Manitoba Canada on July 16-17, 1992. Sixteen hours of data were taken. Measurements of multiple dE/dX, rigidity, and time of flight were used to search for antihelium in the cosmic radiation. A report on the results will be given. The IMAX experiment was supported by NASA: RTOP 353-87-02 (GSFC); grants NAGW-1919 (Caltech) and NAGW- 1418 (NMSU), and in Germany by the DFG and the BMFT. ^1currently at Max-Planck-Institut für Extraterrestrische Physik
