A benchtop that fits all
The SKYSCAN 1273 sets a new standard for non-destructive testing (NDT) with benchtop instruments, providing a performance previously only achieved by floor standing systems. Samples with up to 500 mm length, 300 mm diameter, and a maximum weight of 20 kg can be inspected.
The combination of a higher-energy X-ray source running at higher power and a large format flat-panel detector with ultimate sensitivity and readout speed provides excellent image quality in just a few seconds.
SKYSCAN 1273 is complemented by 3D.SUITE. This comprehensive software suite covers GPU-accelerated reconstruction, 2D/ 3D morphological analysis, as well as surface and volume rendering visualization.
The SKYSCAN 1273’s large sample chamber accepts samples larger than what can be scanned with a single detector field-of-view. By offset scanning in sections and putting the large format flat-panel detector in offset positions, SKYSCAN 1273 scans large objects up to 250 mm in diameter and 250 mm in length. 3D.SUITE automatically and seamlessly stitches the oversized images together.
SKYSCAN 1273 comes equipped with a large-format 6 MP detector based on the latest flat-panel technology, achieving very high contrast in the accumulated images thanks to the large dynamic range. The fast frame rate in combination with an optimized scintillator enable excellent image quality in a stunningly short cycle of less than 15 seconds, which is ideal for time-resolved 3D X-ray microscopy.
The Bruker material testing stages are designed to perform compression experiments up to 4400 N and tensile experiments up to 440 N. All stages automatically communicate through the system’s rotation stage, without the need of any cable connections. Using the supplied software, scheduled scanning experiments can be set up.
Bruker's heating and cooling stages can reach temperatures of up to 80ºC, or 30ºC below ambient temperature. Just like the other stages, no extra connections are needed, and there is an automatic recognition of the stage. Using the heating & cooling stages, samples can be examined under non-ambient conditions, to evaluate the effect of temperature on the sample’s microstructure.
The SKYSCAN 1273 builds on Bruker’s key role in the bone research community by offering a microCT scanner for your really big samples. You can put your head inside it’s cavernous sample chamber. So bone biologists and dentists can be joined by dinosaur palaeontologists and archaeologists as well as clinical practitioners imaging biopsies and orthopedic surgery resections, as users of “big microCT”.
Teeth are a step up from rodent bones in thickness and mineral density, requiring an appropriate microCT solution. The SKYSCAN 1273 is this solution, effortlessly imaging small and large teeth, even fossil ones subject to mineral diagenesis. And this capability in a user-friendly high-energy desktop instrument.
Wood gives exceptionally good results with microCT visualization - the finest details of the xylem and phloem canals are resolved and contrasted. MicroCT differentiation of tissue densities is nondestructive. The enormous scan chamber of the SKYSCAN 1273 allows even small potted trees to be mounted for scanning. A wide range of different plant and animal samples can be visualized and analyzed with little or no need of sample treatment.
