The HeliScan™ from Thermo Scientific™ is a pioneering solution, leading the way in a new generation of multi-application microCT technology. Its iterative reconstruction technology and unique helical scanning produces unparalleled image fidelity; delivering the highest signal-to-noise ratio when compared to traditional circular scanning technology.
HeliScan™ offers a plethora of unique benefits, including:
- The ability to capture high-fidelity images from tall samples using one continuous scan – this can completely eliminate artifacts which are common to many multi-scan stitching methods.
- The ability to detect the contours of samples in the initial scan by using an auto envelope workflow technique. This is a feature that is not offered by any other microCT system.
- The ability to prevent motion deformation using an advanced artifact correction technique that flattens the helical trajectory.
Heliscan microCT for Materials Science
Thermo Scientific’s HeliScan™ represents the start of a new era of microCT in Materials Science. It not only utilizes advanced helical scanning and iterative reconstruction technology to produce the best image fidelity available; it also functions extremely well as part of a multi-scale imaging solution.
When used in this way, the HeliScan™ allows scientists to gain valuable insight from internal structures, meaning that they can effectively explore and validate a huge range of material properties.
As a valuable component in any multi-scale, multi-modal workflow, the HeliScan™ is able to deliver higher resolution imaging when used with a focused ion beam/scanning electron microscope, or atomic-scale analysis when used in a transmission electron microscope.
Heliscan microCT for Oil and Gas
HeliScan’s resolution and image accuracy can be of real benefit to core analysts, geologists, petrophysicists and reservoir engineers, by helping users to learn about the microstructural context of their core samples.
HeliScan™ bridges the gap between SEM and whole core CT datasets, making it the best choice for quantitative property assessments, the visualization of experiments and the high resolution digital archiving of core plug samples.
Developed with optimal user experience and ease-of-use at its core, helical microCT technology delivers tangible results whether the user is conducting 4D experiments or detailed research, scanning and digitizing of samples for future archives or quantifying porosity, permeability and dynamic rock properties.
