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.

Super-charging 3D X-ray Imaging

Wiley Webinar

One of the principal challenges when applying X-ray microscopy to solve academic and industrial problems is a compromise one needs to make between imaging throughput and image quality. High resolution 3D X-ray microtomography acquisition times can be on the order of several hours, which can lead to challenging return-on-investment (ROI) calculations when weighing the relative advantage of high accuracy 3D analysis with cheaper, less capable analytical techniques.

To tackle this issue, optimization of each step in the production of actionable information from these microscopes is required. For 3D X-ray microtomography, these steps typically consist of sample mounting, scan setup, 2D-projection image acquisition, 2D to 3D image reconstruction, image post-processing and segmentation, and final analysis.

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.
