SUBIC has a laboratory X-ray imaging system: Zeiss Xradia Versa 520.  Zeiss Xradia Versa 520 is the most advanced model in the Xradia Versa family. With user-friendly control software, automatic loading robot, and advanced microscopic system, our machine offers the best experience for researchers. It has been used to make non-destructive, high resolution 3D Imaging of everything from insect eyes to animal bones and fossils.


There are a variety of fields that can benefit from the X-ray techn ique and at SUBIC scientists from many different research areas use our equipment. Here are a few examples:

• Life Sciences

• Medicine and biomedical research

• Materials and Engineering

• Environmental Sciences

• Physics

• Paleontology and Archeology

• Industrial applications

• Food science


The Zeiss Xradia Versa 520 can operate  with different methodologies, for example:

• Radiography: 2D imaging

• Tomography: 3D imaging

• Dual energy scan: Imaging at two different X-ray energies can potentially provide quantitative information about the composition and density of the object with multiple materials.

• Phase-contrast imaging: Using phase shift of the X-rays to enhance the image contrast for low-absorbing materials.
