Micro Computed Tomography

The platform provides access to the Skyscan 1276, Bruker high-resolution and fast micro computed tomograph (micro-CT). This system allows for continuously variable magnification scannning of small laboratory animals and biological samples with high spatial resolution down to 2.8 micrometer pixel size. Variable X-Ray energy coupled with a wide range of filters ensures optimal image quality for diverse research applications. The SkyScan 1276 administers low radiation dose to the animals thus allowing multiple scans in longitudinal preclinical studies without the risk of unwanted radiation.
