High-resolution 3D X-ray Microscopy

Our SKYSCAN 1272 can nondestructively visualize up to 209 Megapixel (14450x14450 pixels) virtual slices through objects, more than 2600 such slices after a single scan using a 16-megapixel camera in triple offset mode. Thanks to phase-contrast enhancement, object details as small as 0.35um can be detected.


The ability to move both the sample and large-format CCD camera as close as possible to the source substantially increases the measured intensity. That is why SKYSCAN 1272 scans up to 5 times faster compared to conventional systems with fixed camera position.


The SKYSCAN 1272 offers automatic selection of parameters with Genius-Mode. Magnification, energy, filter, exposure time and background corrections can all be optimized automatically with a single click.


Large format imaging is supported by multithreaded GPU-accelerated 3D-reconstruction and realistic visualization by surface and volume rendering. For high-speed requirements, InstaRecon®, the world’s fastest CT reconstruction software, accelerates 3D imaging up to 100 times compared to traditional algorithms.
