ZEISS XRadia MicroXCT-400

The ZEISS Xradia MicroXCT-400 is a fully-shielded laboratory x-ray microscope for high-resolution microCT scanning of ex vivo samples from 0.5-50 mm in diameter. The system uses a two-step process combining geometric and optical magnification to yield a maximum spatial resolution below 1.5 µm at 1 mm field of view. Different x-ray filters can be used optionally to shape the x-ray spectrum and scan x-ray dense samples. The instrument is fully calibrated for image geometry and can be be used optionally for density measurements, dual energy scanning, and in-line phase contrast imaging.
