Large-Volume Micro-CT System
The large-volume micro-CT scanner will allow 3D scanning of large and heavy samples. This includes whole machine parts, human and animal limbs or segments, biomaterials, prosthesis devices, large animals and vertebrates, fossils and plant root systems for research and industrial applications. This allows experimental testing rigs, such as mechanical stages or environmental chambers, to be placed inside the scanner (in situ testing), for testing samples while scanning.

In situ testing stages
The following mechanical testing stages are available for use with the micro-CT system, allowing tensile and compressive loading of the specimen while scanning:
An in house-built stage (20kN load cell)
A customised stage (5kN load cell, Deben CT5000N)
