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!

Europe / Asia
