Due to major renovations to the building housing UTCT, our scanning services will be unavailable from approximately mid-May to mid-August 2015. The lab will otherwise be fully operational off-site. Please contact us if you need scanning performed prior to this temporary shut-down!
In 2008 UTCT expanded our imaging capabilities with the acquisition of an Xradia MicroXCT scanner. This scanner is capable of sub-micron resolution, thus effectively covering the smaller specimen size ranges (<1 cm) previously beyond our capabilities. Click here for sample imagery.
