Bruker microCT has published a very interesting video about the new new 3D X-ray microscope SkyScan 2214. The video shows the amazing possibilities of non-destructive 3D imaging down to the sub-micrometer range.
In its recent issue from April 28th, 2020, the Badische Neusten Nachrichten (BNN) published an article very much worth reading about our involvement in the development of a procedure for the refurbishment of medical protective masks.
Given the continuing shortage of protection materials for hospital staff during the Corona crisis, Helios experts have in the past weeks developed a safe procedure for refurbishing FFP masks. Helios is making this method publically available, so that all medical staff can be supplied with sufficient protective materials.
Bruker has developed a special scan mode for samples with a high aspect ratio for the latest generation of SkyScan micro-CT devices. Objects of this type are characterized by a high ratio of length to width and always present users of microtomography with challenges.
With the new SkyScan 1273 Bruker presents a high-resolution X-ray 3D microscope for large samples in the form of a table. XXL objects up to 50 cm x 30 cm can be accommodated in the measuring chamber, the largest field of view is 25 cm x 25 cm.
Our customer Dr. Arnold Staniczek and his team from the State Museum of Natural History in Stuttgart recently achieved a scientific sensation.
The new Nano-CT from the SkyScan family impresses with its outstanding optical resolution of less than 0.5 μm and a wide range of applications.
A look into the inside of an insect's skull - what used to be possible only for zoologists by means of a histological examination can be conveniently realized on the basis of microtomography with multiple magnification and a 3D view. We examined the sample presented here in a SkyScan 1272 micro-CT with a resolution of 1 μm / voxel and [...]
A drug, such as a painkiller, should act reliably and always release the drug in a certain period of time. A decisive factor for this is the active substance content and a reproducible release kinetics. The latter depends on the structural composition of the drug, in particular on the spatial distribution and sizes of the drug particles and the formulation auxiliaries. With a micro-CT we can scan tablets nondestructively [...]
The discovery of a mummy or unique artifacts of human history is a sensation because it forms part of the cultural heritage. For many investigations, however, a damage of the object, for example in the form of a sampling is required, the preservation of the find for science is no longer guaranteed. With X-ray microtomography, archaeologists and representatives of related [...]
