3D X-Ray Microscopy for Everyone

Ultimate Ease-of-Use

The desktop SKYSCAN 1275 is a real 3D X-ray microscopy power pack, designed for fast scanning of a wide range of samples. Thanks to the compact geometry and fast flat-panel detector the time to result can be as short as a few minutes. Just ideal for high throughput imaging.

The SKYSCAN 1275 comes furthermore with a high level of automation thus providing superior ease-of-use. Simply pushing the button at the control panel starts an auto-sequence of a fast scan, followed by reconstruction and volume rendering. All executed while the next sample is already being scanned. The optional 16-position sample changer even allows for unattended high throughput scanning.

The SKYSCAN 1275 is complemented by 3D.SUITE. This extensive software suite covers GPU-accelerated reconstruction, 2D/ 3D morphological analysis, as well as surface and volume rendering visualization.

Key Features

Push-Button XRM


Just insert a sample, manually or automatically, and get a complete 3D volume without any further interaction.
Push-Button XRM includes everything: automatic sample size detection, sample scanning, 3D reconstruction, and 3D volume rendering. Ideal for routine tasks, or operation by non-expert users!
You need full control? No problem, SKYSCAN 1275 offers all features.
Combined with a sample changer SKYSCAN 1275 even works 24/7.


Sample changer


SKYSCAN 1275 can optionally be equipped with an external 16-position sample changer to increase throughput for QC and routine analysis.
The sample changer accepts a variety of sample sizes, up to a diameter of 96 mm.
Samples can be can be easily replaced at any time without interrupting an ongoing scanning process. New samples are automatically detected, and LED‘s indicate the status for every scan: ready, scanning, done.

In-situ stages

The Bruker material testing stages are designed to perform compression experiments up to 4400 N and tensile experiments up to 440 N. All stages automatically communicate through the system’s rotation stage, without the need of any cable connections. Using the supplied software, scheduled scanning experiments can be set up.

Bruker’s heating and cooling stages can reach temperatures of up to +80ºC, or 30ºC below ambient temperature. Just like the other stages, no extra connections are needed, and there is an automatic recognition of the stage. Using the heating & cooling stages, samples can be examined under non-ambient conditions, to evaluate the effect of temperature on the sample’s microstructure.
