Yxlon’s participation in the Sharktoberfest Nightlife event on October 5th was great fun! Over 130 interested and interesting people visited our table or took the tour of the Project Lab to check out the FF20 CT System on loan until January 2018. This high resolution Computed Tomography (CT) System is currently helping California Academy of Sciences inspect specimens from their vast collection. CT imaging technology allows Cal Academy scientists to see the inner features of biological specimens using non-destructive evaluation methods.
At the end of July, YXLON International, a company of the Swiss tech holding COMET Group, lent one of their state-of-the-art computed tomography systems to the California Academy of Sciences. The FF20 CT system will be in use at the institute until January 31st, 2018.
