02 Dec Angstrom Scientific Inc. is appointed as exclusive US distributor for the phase-contrast benchtop inCiTe™ micro-CT
Kitchener (Ontario, Canada) –KA Imaging has signed an exclusive distribution agreement for the USA with Angstrom Scientific Inc. for its phase-contrast benchtop inCiTe™ micro-CT system. inCiTe™ is a revolutionary benchtop micro-CT system capable of inline phase-contrast. The inline phase-contrast is enabled by KA Imaging’s own amorphous-selenium direct conversion x-ray detector technology, and can achieve a true 2 µm spatial resolution and 0.8 µm nominal resolution. The inCiTe™ is ideal for use on biomaterials, polymer composites and other low-density materials. Fields that can benefit from in-line phase contrast include non-destructive testing (NDT), additive manufacturing, electronics, agriculture, geology, preclinical imaging and specimen radiography.
Angstrom Scientific is a leading USA supplier for imaging and analysis products in the area of SEM TEM and x-ray microscopy. Amol Karnick, CEO of KA Imaging, is excited about the formation of this strategic partnership. “Angstrom Scientific has a proven track record of successfully bringing high-valued x-ray imaging products to the market, as well as providing excellent end user support. KA Imaging looks forward to working with Angstrom Scientific to bring the best-in-class benchtop micro CT from KA Imaging to imaging centres and materials research laboratories across the US”, says Amol. Angstrom Scientific’s CEO Bob Sommerville adds: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the KA Imaging team. The exclusive and patented detector technology incorporated into the inCiTe will provide a very competitive entry into the benchtop micro-CT market.”
