Rigaku CTLab GX130


The Rigaku CTLab GX130 is a high-performance x-ray computed tomography (CT) instrument that provides high-speed imaging and can accommodate larger samples than our other CT systems. The maximum field of view for a single scan is 72 x 33 mm (specifics differ, depending on scan speed). In high-speed mode, a full scan may be performed in 8 seconds; high-resolution scans take about 1 hour. The x-ray source is a 39-watt tungsten-anode micro-focus tube that is adjustable from 30 to ca. 130 kV. Because the CTLab GX130 system utilizes a stationary sample bed, it is ideal for in-situ experiment designs.

CT Lab GX series, for ultra-high-speed, high-resolution 3D X-ray micro CT. Using the Sample-Stationary Method, these new devices can perform CT scans in 8 seconds at top speed, with a minimum resolution of 4.5 µm.
