The Nikon XT H 225ST (Nikon Metrology, Tring, UK) is a large volume cabinet Computed Tomography (CT) system enabling the 3D-scanning of large and heavy samples for research and industrial applications. This includes whole machine parts, excised human and animal limbs/segments, prosthetic devices, batteries, plants, fossils, vertebrates and 3D composite materials. This also allows experimental testing rigs, such as mechanical stages (listed below) or environmental chambers, to be placed inside the scanner (in situ testing), for testing samples while scanning, to study the structure-function relationships.
