DESCRIPTION

  • Maintenance-free 45-90 kV micro-focus X-ray source, various filter materials are available,
  • micro-focus X-ray source mA range up to 0.180 mA.
  • 3 Mp cooled X-ray camera,
  • Continuously variable magnification with smallest pixel size of ~3 micron,
  • GPU-accelerated, CPU-Multi threaded and 3D reconstructions supplied as standard,
  • 80 mm scanning diameter, >120 mm scanning length,
  • continuous rotating table with shortest scanning cycle of 1 minute.
  • Software for 2D/3D image visualization and measurements , and realistic visualization,

LOTUS-inVitro provides extremely high-quality images with contrast-to-noise, resolution, dose performance and excellent details optimized for imaging of objects containing different materials.Also, it is a high performance, stand-alone, fast in-vitro and ex-vivo micro-CT with continuously variable magnification for scanning small objects (insects, …). It has an unrivaled combination of high contrast due to dual energy method used in this device, high resolution, big image size, possibility for 3D reconstructions, and low dose imaging. The image field of view (up to 80 mm wide and more than 120 mm long) allows full object size scanning. The variable magnification allows scanning all kind of samples with high spatial resolution down to about 3 µm pixel size. Variable X-Ray energy combined with a range of filters ensures optimal image quality for diverse research applications from low density objects to very high density objects.
