SkyScan 1272: Ultra High Resolution Micro-CT in a Desktop Platform
The SkyScan 1272 Micro-CT ultra high resolution desktop 3D scanner can non-destructively image samples for life science, materials, electronics, geology, bone, and more applications, offering options for high resolution micro-CT with up to 209 Megapixel virtual slices. The unique adaptive geometry feature of the microtomograph ensures that high the system will scan with the fastest speed possible for each resolution setting.
The 1272 micro-CT is perfect for both multi-use facilities and specialized applications. The optional sample carousel extends the automated scanning feature to multiple samples, without user interaction, freeing you up to perform other work.
A single scan of 2600 micro-CT slices, each up to 209 Megapixel (14450×14450 pixels) using newly developed 16Mp and 11Mp X-ray detectors, is instrumental in generating the detail and resolution you need to advance your ground breaking research.
Three offset positions allow you to scan your samples quickly or with higher resolution. The innovative Adaptive Geometry scanning of the SkyScan 1272 microtomography scanner ensures you the fastest scan times possible especially in the intermediate resolution levels, where scans are several times faster compared to micro-CT systems which have a fixed source-detector design. The scan times are faster while maintaining image quality.
The SkyScan 1272 desktop micro-CT can automatically optimize X-ray energy and energy filtering making the scanning of new and unknown samples easy. The systems uses a new maintenance-free X-ray source and automatic 6-position filter changer for maximum scanning flexibility. Phase-contrast enhancement can help detect object details as small as 0.35um.
With the large format imaging of the SkyScan micro-CTs, it is important to have multithreaded GPU-accelerated 3D-reconstruction and realistic visualization by surface and volume rendering. NRecon can use multiple graphics cards to quickly reconstruction large micro-CT datasets and CTVox provides an easy to use but powerful 3D imaging and movie creation for you micro-CT datasets.
In order to achieve the optimal resolution from your samples, the system includes a built-in precision micropositioning stage. Additionally, optional in situ stages can be added to scan samples during compression, tension, cooling or heating.
An optional 16-position automatic sample changer allows the adding / removing / replacing of samples without interrupting a live scanning process. Automatic magnification adjustment and scanning protocol optimization is available for individual samples. At the end of the scan the system can send you an e-mail with a direct link to the scanning results, which can be opened across a network.
Reconstruction results can be sent to iPad/iPhone/iPodTouch. Special software for mobile platform performs volume rendering and virtual cut of objects with touch screen gesture controls.
The full range of the software for 2D / 3D quantitative analysis and for realistic 3D visualization is also supplied with the scanner.
