ZEISS Xradia 630 Versa introduces resolution performance for expanded research capabilities

Human-centered design and AI-based deep learning extend usability and productivity of X-ray microscopy platform

ZEISS today introduces the ZEISS Xradia 630 Versa X-ray microscope (XRM) for academic and industrial research. The newest addition to the ZEISS Xradia Versa family breaks resolution performance barriers, delivers an intuitive user experience, and accelerates productivity for all with easy, guided workflows and higher throughput.
With the ZEISS Advanced Reconstruction Toolbox (ART) 3.0, the platform also leverages game-changing artificial intelligence (AI) for reconstruction.

These capabilities combine to enable the study of an unprecedented range of samples in the fields of materials science, battery research, advanced electronics, life science and many more while accommodating the novice to most expert users.


ZEISS Xradia 630 Versa is the most fully featured platform in the ZEISS Xradia Versa family of 3D X-ray microscopes. In addition to the new NavX user interface, the system comes standard with FPX Flat Panel Display and optionally the 40X-Prime detector for high resolution, high energy imaging.

High-powered resolution performance with RaaD 2.0

ZEISS introduces higher energy capabilities and the new 40X Prime (40X-P) objective with ZEISS Xradia 630 Versa. Known for their ability to achieve Resolution at a Distance (RaaD), ZEISS Xradia Versa systems allow a wide array of sample types and sizes over a long range of length scales at high resolution. With 40X-P, the system achieves unparalleled resolution performance of 450-500 nm across the full range of energy, from 30 kV to 160 kV, defining RaaD 2.0 and unlocking entirely new application capabilities for researchers.

The user experience evolves for expanded accessibility

Novel X-ray imaging can be complex, so ZEISS XRM researchers studied user habits, dove into their challenges, and employed human-centered design principles for ZEISS Xradia 630 Versa. Now even the newest user can be immediately productive. The NavX software guides users through automated workflows with intelligent system insights and delivers experimental results more easily and efficiently while also allowing experienced users to explore the full versatility of ZEISS Xradia 630 Versa.

Additionally, the NavX File Transfer Utility (FTU) takes the data that is being produced by the microscope and automatically transfers it to other locations so that users have access where they need it, when they need it.

Game-changing AI

With the simultaneous launch of ZEISS Advanced Reconstruction Toolbox (ART) 3.0, ZEISS offers the AI Supercharger package with the all-new ZEISS DeepScout as well as ZEISS DeepRecon Pro modules for all ZEISS Xradia Versa systems. ZEISS DeepScout uses high-resolution 3D microscopy datasets as training data for lower resolution, larger field of view datasets and upscales the larger volume data using a trained model, representing effective throughput boosts of 100 times what can be achieved by a very high spatial resolution at an equivalent volume. ZEISS DeepRecon Pro provides high throughput along and image quality benefits across a diverse set of sample types.
This capability is available for the ZEISS Xradia 630 Versa platform, which provides maximum integration and power to seamlessly deliver resolution across large fields of view (FOV) with high throughput.

Daniel Sims, head of ZEISS X-ray Microscopy says, "With our new flagship instrument, we are offering really innovative technologies that are integrated in a very powerful way. Our goal in developing this new XRM was to not just extend the imaging capability but to also ensure that all our users could easily access the full potential of the system, and that all customers will benefit from the increased productivity in their applications. We’re confident that ZEISS Xradia 630 Versa has achieved this result – the imaging capability has been extended significantly and it is quicker and easier to use. Both beginners and experts will be able to get faster results with greater insights making them more successful in their experiments and their facilities."
