Scan Service

Scan service offers customers the opportunity to profit from SCANCO Medical's wealth of experience in high-resolution scanning and 3D analysis.

To take advantage of scan service, send us an e-mail describing your samples and analysis requirements. Please include details about sample material, size and special handling requirements. We will provide a detailed estimate of time required and associated cost for the study, which depend on desired image resolution and volume to be scanned.

After acceptance of these conditions, you can send us your specimens. These will be returned along with images and 3D analysis results upon completion of the study.

We are able to scan specimens with sizes ranging from mouse vertebra to human femur. In addition to biological samples, we are also happy to scan a wide range of materials, such as building materials, ceramics, synthetics, wood, as well as geological samples, medical implants and foodstuffs.

In addition to scanning using one of our µCT specimen scanners, we now offer scan service using Synchroton radiation. Synchrotron radiation allows extremely high resolution (down to 370 nm) and favorable beam hardening characteristics for dense materials. Please e-mail us if you would like more details about this service.

We are also keen to collaborate in large-scale preclinical and clinical studies. If you require a technical partner for your project, please contact us for more details.
