X-ray Micro Computed Tomography for Life Science

Bruker’s portfolio of 3D X-ray microCT systems offers turnkey solutions for non-destructive, high resolution 3D imaging of small laboratory animals and a wide variety biological samples. This includes mineralized and soft tissues, tumors, plants and insects, as well as archeological and paleontological research fields.

Micro-CT for Life Science

Micro-computed tomography (microCT) or X-Ray Microscopy (XRM)  is X-ray imaging in 3D, the same method used in clinical CT scans, but on a small scale with massively increased resolution. It really represents 3D microscopy, where very fine scale internal structure of objects is imaged non-destructively, both in vivo and ex vivo. Bruker micro- and nano-tomography is available in a range of easy-to-use desktop and floor standing instruments, which generate 3D images of your sample’s morphology and internal microstructure with resolutions down to micron and even sub-micron level.



Real time view of the sample and actively updated default scan parameters allow fast scan setup.


Radiographs can be seen in real time allowing measurement monitoring. Measurements can be batched to ensure full system utilization.


GPU driven, cutting edge algorithm results in 3D model reconstruction in a fraction of the traditional computing time.
