SkyScan 1272 High-resolution Micro-CT (Photo: Business Wire)

Stocks in this article: BRKR

Bruker today announces the SkyScan 1272 , an innovative high-resolution X-ray micro-CT (computed tomography) system, which can non-destructively visualize up to 200 Megapixel (14,450x14,450 pixels) virtual slices through objects. More than 2,600 slices can be reconstructed after a single CT data acquisition scan, using new 16 Megapixel or 11 Megapixel X-ray detectors, in up to three offset positions. Using advanced phase-contrast enhancement technology, object details as small as 0.35μm can be detected.

The SkyScan 1272 benefits from its, automatically adjusted acquisition geometry, an innovation that has particular advantages for intermediate resolution levels, delivering scans several times faster than micro-CT systems with a fixed source-detector design. Large format imaging is enabled by multi-threaded, GPU-accelerated 3D reconstruction and realistic visualization by surface and volume rendering. The system also includes a built-in, precision micro-positioning stage that provides highly accurate sample control. Sample scanning during compression, tension, cooling or heating is also enabled.

An optional 16-position automatic sample changer delivers higher throughput, even enabling the addition or replacement of samples without interrupting live X-ray scans in progress. For individual samples, automatic magnification adjustment and optimization of scanning protocols are available. To support flexible workflows the SkyScan 1272 can automatically distribute results via email, sending a link to a result file. Reconstruction results can also be sent to an iPad, and for mobile platforms, special software can perform volume rendering and virtual slicing of objects with touch screen controls.

The complete range of software for 2D/3D quantitative analysis and for realistic 3D visualization is supplied as standard with the SkyScan 1272 . An optional GPU server with eight NVIDIA Tesla graphical processors, and a cluster version of unique hybrid CPU/GPU software provides the fastest commercial μCT 3D reconstruction.
