Bruker Introduces New SKYSCAN™ 2214 CMOS Edition

Tuesday, February 28, 2023

Bruker announced at the 12th International Conference on Industrial Computed Tomography the new SKYSCAN™ 2214 CMOS Edition, a multiscale X-ray microscope based on nano-CT (computed tomography) for industrial and academic research. With the CMOS Edition, the highly successful and proven SKYSCAN 2214 platform now incorporates the latest scientific CMOS (sCMOS) detector technology and brings cutting-edge X-ray imaging at highest resolution to the next level.

SKYSCAN 2214 CMOS Edition is designed for low maintenance, thus enhancing system uptime, and reducing cost of ownership. The SKYSCAN 2214 CMOS Edition supports advances in preclinical imaging. The extended field of view of the sCMOS detectors combined with true high resolution allows a wide range of samples to be imaged ex vivo, offering artifact-free analysis of mineralised as well as soft tissues, e.g. in bone and dental imaging, lung imaging or tumour vascularisation.

SKYSCAN 2214 CMOS Edition retains the innovative, modular design that accommodates up to four detectors, allowing users to select at the touch of a button the most appropriate detector for the samples and applications. This unique design now encompasses a 6 Megapixel (Mp) flat panel and three optimised 15/16 Mp sCMOS detectors. It provides an unrivalled field of view for the respective true 3D resolution down to the 500nm range.
