X-Ray Microscopy

Zeiss Xradia Versa 510

The Zeiss Xradia 510 Versa 3D X-ray microscope allows sub-micron resolution for samples from millimetres to centimetres, achievable via a unique RaaD (resolution at a distance) capability. The instruments powerful combination of world-leading resolution and contrast with flexible working distances provides outstanding non-destructive imaging performance.
