Industry-leading 4D and In Situ Capabilities for Flexible Sample Sizes and Types

Xradia 410 Versa X-ray microscope delivers cost-efficient, flexible 3D imaging to enable you to address a wide range of samples and research environments. Non-destructive X-ray imaging preserves and extends the use of your valuable samples over time. The instrument achieves 0.9 μm true spatial resolution with minimum achievable voxel size of 100 nm. Advanced absorption and phase contrast (for soft or low-Z materials) provide you with more versatility to overcome the limitations of traditional computed tomography (CT) approaches.

Xradia Versa solutions extend scientific research beyond the limits of projection-based micro- and nano-CT systems. Where traditional tomography relies on a single stage of geometric magnification, Xradia 410 Versa features a unique two-stage process based on synchrotron-caliber optics. It is easy to use, with flexible contrast. Breakthrough Resolution at a Distance (RaaD) enables you to maintain submicron resolution across a broad spectrum of sample dimensions in native environments and within a wide range of in situ rigs. Non-destructive multi-length scale capabilities allow you to image the same sample across a wide range of magnifications, making it possible to uniquely characterize the evolution of material microstructure properties between sequential treatments (4D) or as they are subjected to simulated environmental conditions (in situ).

Additionally, the Scout-and-Scan control system enables an efficient workflow environment with recipe-based set-up that makes Xradia 410 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). 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.

Application Examples

ZEISS Xradia 410 Versa

Materials Research
Image and quantify microstructure evolution in 3D and 4D (time-based). RaaD enables resolution to be maintained for imaging within in situ rigs, including sub-interior regions of your samples, across a large variety of material types and sizes.
Raw Materials
Characterize and quantify porosity and micro rock structures to achieve the most accurate 3D submicron characterization of rock pore network for “digital rock” simulations and in situ multiphase fluid flow studies. Use X-ray vision to understand crack propagation in ceramics, metals and building materials. Perform quantitative, high resolution, three-dimensional microstructural analysis of relatively large samples at high resolution in situ.
Life Sciences
Characterize specimens in high definition for developmental biology, virtual histology and neural network mapping. High contrast detectors coupled with phase contrast imaging deliver unprecedented cellular-level detail.
Image failures and microstructural detail in 3D, navigate to a location anywhere within intact sample, perform non-destructive virtual cross sections on large boards and advanced 3D packages. Xradia Versa offer the industry’s highest resolution, non-destructive solution for 3D submicron imaging that complements or replaces physical cross sectioning methods.
