MicroCT Virtual Rendezvous 2020

As Bruker MicroCT User Meeting scheduled for May 12-14, 2020 in Leuven, Belgium, was cancelled due to the worldwide Corona (COVID-19) outbreak, we have planned a virtual avenue for our users to meet this year!

The program will consist of several presentations from our life science users on their excellent research and a few presentations from Bruker Application Scientist to update you on the latest features like Phase Contrast Retrieval techniques and more!

Please note these dates in your agenda, more details on the program will follow soon!

Both events will highlight separate set of speakers, so to the MicroCT enthusiasts out there, you are welcome to register for both events if you desire, after all it is a Virtual Rendezvous! We look forward to virtually welcoming you at the meeting!

Europe/APAC Users May 13th (9:30am to 3:30pm CEST (UTC +2)) Register Now
