3D computed tomography for pre-clinical small animal studies
Rigaku introduces the latest technology in X-ray computed tomography (CT) for laboratory animals. This in vivo 3D CT instrument allows samples to be monitored for long periods of time.
Cone-shaped X-ray beam for high-speed imaging
This CT exposes a cone-shaped X-ray beam onto the 2D detector. The rotation arm rotates 360° around a sample to acquire full 3D data. This provides 17-second high-speed imaging.
High-resolution microfocus X-ray source
90kV (maximum X-ray output) and 5 micrometer-focused X-ray source provide high-resolution images that allow users to study sections as small as 20 micrometers.
In vivo study
A sample can be periodically monitored in viable condition. This improves experimental efficiency dramatically.
Rigaku recommends the following systems:
High-speed, stationary sample microtomography of large samples
