µ-CT of the radiocarpal region

Microscopy, µ-CT

The laboratory has access to both the Otago Centre of Electron Microscopy, housing a variety of electron microscopes, and the Otago Centre for Confocal Microscopy. The facility furthermore houses a Brooker Skyscan 1172 µ-CT scanner. Further access to large-scale µ-CT and other devices is provided via our collaborative partners.
