Helical scanning micro-computed X-ray tomography

Thermo Scientific HeliScan MicroCT brings a new era of micro computed tomography to materials science by leveraging advanced helical scanning and iterative reconstruction technology to produce excellent image fidelity. As part of a multi-scale imaging solution, HeliScan MicroCT enables you to gain valuable insight from internal structures to explore and validate a wide range of material properties.


HeliScan MicroCT features

Accurate segmentation

HeliScan MicroCT is the only microCT system specifically designed for quantification of high-quality, geometrically precise images.

Fast-throughput, high-quality analysis

Helical scanning and a large cone angle, combined with proprietary autofocus and drift correction, deliver high signal-to-noise ratio. Efficient scans of representative volumes provide ready-to-segment raw data that reduces the need for digital manipulation.

Better statistical relevance

Seamless representative volumes of high-aspect-ratio samples captured in one scan rather than inefficient, artifact-prone multi-scan with stitching.

Customizable, dynamic in situ experiments

Customizable feed-through ports, adaptable stages and a cabinet designed as a versatile, open platform easily support your experiments.

Ease of use and reliability

The system is optimized for multi-user environments, with advanced features available for expert users. Instrument components are chosen for dependability and serviceability.
