Our museum’s Zeiss Xradia 520 Versa 3D X-ray microscope unlocks a whole new dimension in 3D Technology that allows us to study an object down to a scale of 0,3 microns.
The Zeiss Xradia 520 Versa 3D X-ray microscope opens new area of flexibility for scientific purposes and expands the boundaries of non-destructive 3D imaging with high contrast and heaps of set-up capabilities. The Xradia 520 Versa achieves a minimum voxel size of 70nm.
Tomography is imaging by sections or sectioning, through the use of any kind of penetrating wave. The method is used in radiology, archaeology, biology, atmospheric science, geophysics, oceanography, plasma physics, materials science, astrophysics, quantum information, and other areas of science. Whether you want to scan a fossil tooth or bone or the genitals of a small insect. A variety of items, barely visible or nonvisible at all with your bare eyes becomes visible with this amazing technique in a sharp 3D imaging projection.
With the naked eye not visible can be seen in the next pictures:
Coiled genitals of a mosquito
Skeleton head of a toad
