a table-top compact x-ray microCT scanner SkyScan 1174. This scanner uses an x-ray source with adjustable voltage and a range of filters for versatile adaptation to different object densities. A sensitive 1.3 megapixel x-ray camera allows scanning of whole sample volumes in several minutes. Variable magnification (6-30 µm pixel size) is combined with object positioning for easy selection of the object part to be scanned.Read more >
The Laboratory of Bone Biomechanics is dedicated to the study of the micro- to nano-structure of bones and its association with their mechanical function. Bones of all vertebrates, from man to fish, are studied with cutting-edge techniques and equipment.
The overall objective of the laboratory for bone biomechanics is to study the phenotypic biology of bone as a material. We are therefore interested in particular in the detailed structure of various bones and in their mechanical properties.Read more >
