New multiscale X-ray nano-CT system launched by Bruker

Today, Bruker announced the launch of the SKYSCAN™ 2214, a multiscale X-ray nano-CT (computed tomography) system with a unique X-ray source and detector geometry that generates sharper images with outstanding precision.

The SKYSCAN 2214 offers unprecedented, ultra-high resolution for larger fields of view in larger objects, which makes nano-CT practical and truly useful for industrial and academic research.

The SKYSCAN 2214 features an innovative, modular design which accommodates up to four detectors, allowing customers to select the most appropriate detector for their samples and applications.

This flexibility offers the scanning of a wide variety of samples types and sizes in one instrument, reducing the need for multiple, different CT systems. The four detectors are field-upgradeable for cost-effective expansion of the SKYSCAN 2214, in order to accommodate changing analytical requirements.

The SKYSCAN 2214 pushes the boundaries for measuring larger objects at ultra-high resolution. Its uniquely large field of view allows for the analysis of objects up to 300 mm in size. For objects up to 12 mm in size, it provides better than 500 nanometer true 3D resolution. The achievable voxel size is 60 nanometer.  

Its unique detector design encompasses a 6 Megapixel (Mp) flat-panel, and three optimized 8/11 Mp cooled CCD cameras. The SKYSCAN 2214 produces up to 8Kx 8K pixels in every slice, which is 16 times larger than any other nano-CT system available on the market.

While delivering cutting-edge, research-grade results, the SKYSCAN 2214 comes equipped with user-friendly, comprehensive software for excellent data collection and high-end analysis capabilities.

The SKYSCAN 2214 is a game-changer for ultra-high resolution nano-CT in the material sciences. Its superior high resolution for larger objects offers new opportunities for developers of composite materials, as well as for geology, where precision is key to determine porosity and grain size.

In metrology, the precision of the SKYSCAN 2214 enables exact internal dimension measurements at the submicron scale. Ultra-high resolution is also critical for the development of lithium batteries and other energy storage devices.”

Dr. Frank Burgaezy, President of the Bruker AXS Division

Spiral scanning enables distortion-free data acquisition and artefact-free reconstruction. The world’s fastest 3D reconstruction software speeds up imaging an object’s internal microstructure 10-100 times compared to traditional CT reconstruction algorithms.

The SKYSCAN 2214 requires almost no maintenance, thus enhancing system uptime and reducing cost of ownership.

The SKYSCAN 2214 enables new capabilities in preclinical imaging as well. Its large field of view combined with true high-resolution allows a wide range of samples to be imaged ex vivo, offering artefact-free analysis of soft tissues, e.g. in lung imaging or tumour vascularization.

This top-of-the-line, new nano-CT system is also the ultimate tool in the growing fields of zoology and entomology, where very small objects can be studied with extreme precision.”

Dr. Wulf-Ingo Jung, President of the Bruker BioSpin Preclinical Imaging Division
