The YXLON FF20 CT system will be in use at the institute until January 31, 2018, providing insight into the organisms of biological specimens. The nondestructive nature of CT imaging technology allows for a 3D 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 images of a variety of biological specimens.

Yxlon International designs and produces radioscopic and CT inspection systems for industrial applications.
