Bruker - X-ray Micro-CT - SKYSCAN 1174

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.

Technical specifications

X-ray source 20-50kV, 40W maximum power, filter holder for energy selection
X-ray detector 1.3Mp CCD coupled to scintillator by lens with 1:6 zoom range
Spatial Resolution 6 - 30 µm pixel size, approximately 10 µm low-contract resolution
Object Size 5 - 30mm in diameter, 50mm in length (50mm vertical travel)
