World's most compact X-ray micro-CT

This scanner uses an x-ray source with adjustable voltage and a range of filters for versatile adaptation to different object densities. A sensitive 1.3 megapixel x-ray camera allows scanning of your whole sample volume in several minutes. Variable magnification (6-30 µm pixel size) is combined with object positioning for easy selection of the object part to be scanned. The scanner can run from any desktop or portable computer, requiring just one USB (or serial) port and a FireWire (IEEE1394) input. The full range of SkyScan software is supplied, including fast volumetric reconstruction, software for 2D/ 3D quantitative analysis and for realistic 3D visualization.
