The SCANCO Medical Compression/Tension Device allows users to test materials under compression and tension during the microCT scan using a controlled load. The compression device can be activated both inside and outside the scanner allowing application of the load before or while scanning.
The unit can be used together with µCT 35, 40, 80, 50 and 100 as well as vivaCT 40, 75 and 80.
