TESCAN’s CoreTOM micro-CT system integrates, in a single instrument, the standard field of view of a medical CT system with the high-resolution imaging performance of laboratory micro-CT systems.
The CoreTOM can image a broad range of sample sizes, ranging from full cores up to 1 m (~3 ft) in length to millimeter-sized micro-plugs or drill cuttings at 3-µm spatial resolution.
Continuous imaging, fast scan times, and dedicated software tools allow real dynamic CT, enabling scientists to carry out nonstop flow, tension, compression, and other time-dependent analyses. These features render the TESCAN CoreTOM a suitable platform for multi-scale imaging from core to pore.
The TESCAN CoreTOM is fitted with a high-powered microfocus X-ray source, thus facilitating high sample throughput and rapid dynamic imaging with temporal resolutions less than 10 seconds for complete 3D acquisition.
