Micro Computed Tomography System (µCT) – Zeiss Versa 610 X-Ray Microscope

The high resolution Zeiss Versa 610 µCT system is available for researchers in a variety of disciplines for fast, sub-micron, non-destructive imaging and analysis of various specimen. Using a high flux source, multiple objectives, and Zeiss’ Scout and Scan system, the Versa 610 can obtain true spatial resolution of 500 nm.

Micro CT

Dragonfly Pro software is available at the instrument and at an additional workstation for segmentation and further post processing of data.

Samples can be set up for scanning and then remotely monitored using Teamviewer ® ensuring best use of resources.
