X‑ray Computed Tomography

A picture is worth a thousand tests

X‑ray CT is a non-destructive 3D imaging technique that can reveal internal structures of objects in submicron to micron resolution.

It has become an essential tool in materials and life science in recent years with the recent development of image processing software.

We are here to help you solve research problems through X‑ray imaging.
