For ultra-high resolution imaging and dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA).

The compact and fully shielded x-ray cabinet can be placed directly on the bench top in your lab or wherever you need easy access to imaging and DXA analysis

The entire system, consisting of the self-contained x-ray unit and workstation, can be located on a lab bench or directly in the vivarium to protect the integrity of the colony.

The 10 x 15cm CMOS detector coupled with the energy range from 10 - 100kV makes the UltraFocus ideal for imaging a broad range of samples as well as true DXA analysis. The microfocus tube and up to 6X geometric magnification provide up to 8μm resolution images.

In DXA mode the system automatically calculates BMD, BMC, and lean and fast mass percentages. Both whole body and region of interest (ROI) data is presented.
