Key Benefits

  • Improved resolution: HeliScan is now available with user interchangeable, high resolution x-ray source (below 400 nm).
  • Accurate segmentation: HeliScan is the only microCT system specifically designed for quantification of high quality, geometrically precise images.
  • Fast throughput, high-quality analysis: Helical scanning and a large cone angle combined with proprietary autofocus and drift correction delivers the highest signal-to-noise ratio. Efficient scans of representative volumes provide ready-to segment raw data that reduces the need for digital manipulation.
  • Better statistical relevance: Seamless representative volumes of high-aspect ratio samples captured in one scan rather than inefficient, artifact prone multi-scan with stitching.
  • Customizable, dynamic in-situ experiments: Customizable feed-through ports, adaptable stages and a cabinet designed to create a versatile open platform that easily supports your experiments.
  • Ease-of-use and reliability: System optimized for multi-user environments with advanced features available for expert users; components chosen for dependability and serviceability.
