Visualize Internal Structures of Life Science Specimens
Non-destructive X-ray Imaging Solutions from Microns to Millimeters1
Gain More Insights from Your Mineralized Tissue Specimens
Multiscale Bone Acquisitions Down to the Nanoscale
X-ray imaging is invaluable in skeletal research both for sample characterization and for bone morphometry measurements. Expanding bone explorations from mm to nm length scales provides exciting opportunities for addressing new research questions.
Capture Internal Plant Structure without Sectioning
Cellular Level Insights with Full 3D Context
Understanding plant organ systems can provide insights into the health and yield of the plant. Non-destructive X-ray imaging provides high resolution structural information from many different plant components without needing to cut the specimens and remove the 3D context.
Revolutionize Your Imaging of Soft Tissue Structure
Internal Structure Analysis without Complex Sample Preparation
X-ray imaging allows straightforward structural exploration of soft tissues like 3D cultures, organs, tumors, biopsies and embryos. This complements the functional or specific localization information from fluorescence microscopy and bridges the resolution gap to the ultrastructural data generated using electron microscopy.
Streamline Your Multimodal Imaging Workflows
Screen Specimens for Quality and Identify Structures for Further Investigation
Generating high resolution, optimal datasets at the synchrotron or electron microscope requires specimens that are perfectly prepared. Non-destructive X-ray imaging is an easy way to generate a large, 3D specimen map which can be used to verify sample quality, explore internal structure and to guide your selection of a location for subsequent higher resolution acquisitions.
