Achieve new levels of discovery with ZEISS Xradia 510 Versa 3D X-ray microscopes (XRM), the industry’s premier in situ / 4D solution. Our unique RaaD (resolution at a distance) capability breaks the one micron resolution barrier for samples from mm to cm. Use the instrument's powerful combination of world-leading resolution and contrast with flexible working distances to extend the power of non-destructive imaging in your lab.
Maximize the power of X-ray microscopy (XRM) with Xradia 510 Versa for flexible 3D imaging in a wide range of research environments. Xradia 510 Versa achieves better than 0.7 μm true spatial resolution with minimum achievable voxel size below 70 nm. Experience increased versatility for soft or low Z materials with advanced absorption contrast along with innovative phase contrast to overcome the limitations of traditional computed tomography.
Achieve performance beyond micro-CT and extend scientific research past the limits of flat-panel systems. Where traditional tomography relies on a single stage of geometric magnification, Xradia Versa instruments feature a unique two-stage process based on synchrotron-caliber optics with a detection system optimized for resolution, contrast and high resolution at large working distances. With breakthrough ZEISS Resolution at a Distance (RaaD), you can accomplish unprecedented lab-based exploration for a diverse array of applications and sample types.
Non-destructive X-ray and flexible multilength scale capabilities enable you to image the same sample across a wide range of magnifications. As the industry's premier 4D / in situ solution, with Xradia Versa you can uniquely characterize the microstructure of materials in their native environments as well as to study the evolution of properties over time. The optional Versa In Situ Kit allows you to optimize set-up, makes operation easy and provides a faster time to results, organizing the facilities that support in situ rigs (such as wiring and plumbing) to enable maximum imaging performance and ease of use.
Additionally, the Scout-and-Scan control system enables an efficient workflow environment with recipe-based set-up that makes Xradia 510 Versa easy for users with a wide variety of experience levels.
Xradia Versa architecture uses a two-stage magnification technique to enable you to uniquely achieve resolution at a distance (RaaD). In the first stage, enlarge sample images through geometric magnification as with conventional micro-CT. In the second stage, a scintillator converts X-rays to visible light, which is then optically magnified. Reducing dependence upon geometric magnification enables Xradia Versa instruments to maintain submicron resolution at large working distances. This enables you to study the widest range of sample sizes effectively, including within in situ chambers. Additionally, a variety of optional features extend the benefits achieved by the system’s core architecture.
Expand your materials research capabilities, whether visualizing cracks in soft composite materials or measuring porosity in steel, all with a single system. Perform in situ studies by imaging under varying conditions such as tensile, compression, gas, oxidation, wetting and temperature variations. You can also image materials that are incompatible with vacuum and charged particle beams.
Xradia 510 Versa offers the ability to view into deeply buried microstructures that may be unobservable with 2D surface imaging such as optical microscopy, SEM, and AFM. You have the ability to maintain resolution at a distance for in situ imaging experiments, allowing you to study a wide variety of sample sizes and shapes using various in situ apparatus. Understand the impact of these varying conditions over time with the non-destructive nature of X-ray.
Characterize and quantify pore structure and connectivity, understand porosity and permeability, analyze mineral liberation efforts, and study carbon sequestration effectiveness. Perform in situ multiphase fluid flow studies. Experience the most accurate 3D, submicron characterization of microstructural evolution by studying the effects on materials under varying conditions and in 4D (time).
Leverage high resolution and high contrast to explore unstained and stained hard and soft tissues. Quantify osteocyte properties for bone morphology, map neural networks, study vasculature, and understand development of bio structures.
Optimize your processes and analyze failures. Use non-destructive submicron imaging of intact packages for defect localization and characterization. Measure buried features in three dimensions. Xradia Versa offer the industry’s highest resolution, non-destructive solution for 3D submicron imaging that complements or replaces physical cross sectioning methods.
All of the features on the Xradia 510 Versa are seamlessly integrated within the Scout-and-Scan Control System, an efficient workflow environment that allows you to easily scout a region of interest and specify scanning parameters. The easy-to-use system is ideal for a central lab-type setting where your users may have a wide variety of experience levels. The interface maintains the flexibility for which Xradia Versa systems are known, enabling you to set-up scans even more easily. Scout-and-Scan software also offers recipe-based repeatability, which is especially useful for your in situ and 4D research, and enables you to have greater control and efficiency for future work.
