The non-destructive nature of CT imaging technology allows for a 3 dimensional look into a myriad of industrial, biological, and historical samples and artifacts. The FF20 CT is a compact industrial CT system that is helping scientists uncover critical information about how the some 46 million specimens housed at the institute function and interrelate in nature.
The academy has already used the FF20 CT to produce stunning images of a variety of biological specimens and explore the natural world around us.
The future of this promising partnership looks bright, as YXLON helps California Academy of Sciences discover more about our world and all of its inhabitants.
YXLON will also be attending one of the institute’s many NightLife events, Sharktoberfest, on October 5th at 6pm.
