    A consortium of researchers from the Zablocki VA Medical Center, the Medical College of Wisconsin and Marquette University required new imaging tools to advance faculty studies. To this end, a new imaging facility was established to conduct investigation into structure-function relationships. The Keck Functional Imaging Laboratory (KFIL), which houses a high-resolution microfocal X-ray imaging system and a 3-head gamma-ray imaging system, was built with support from the W. M. Keck Foundationis and is located at the Zablocki VAMC. The multipurpose X-ray system is capable dynamic planar imaging as well as micro-CT (computed tomography). The gamma-imaging system has planar scintigraphy and micro-SPECT (single photon emission CT) capabilities. Both instruments are specifically designed for studying small animals and their excised organs. The facility has been applied primarily to the study of pulmonary physiology, but is adaptable for imaging many different biological phenomena.

    Excillum AB
    Finlandsgatan 14
    164 74 Kista


    Excillum makes the MetalJet microfocus x-ray source with an approximately 10-fold increase in x-ray power compared to traditional x-ray sources for x-ray spot sizes of ~5-40 µm. This is possible since the traditional solid anode is replaced by a jet of liquid metal that can support much higher power loading.

    OK, we don’t really qualify for any of the proposed categories, but since we may help speed up micro-CT, perhaps we can qualify anyway. How about changing category to Scanner/Components Manufacturer/Distributor, or add a Components category?

    Services & Software

    JG&A Metrology Center is a specialized lab focused on providing 3D internal part inspection services using Industrial CT Equipment.

    By utilizing our non-destructive Industrial CT (Computed Tomography) Scanning Services, clients are able to drastically reduce preproduction inspection costs and analyze internal failures quickly and accurately in 3D. The NDT process allows for improved quality control without modifying the part or applying external measurement forces during inspection. For both large and small projects, each part is inspected to the highest quality standards. As the process is new to most clients the company’s expert analysis always ensure each customer is educated, comfortable with the inspection process, and satisfied with the results.

    Some key types of analysis are: porosity, void, Volkswagen P-201/VW 50097 cross sectional analysis, P201/VW 50097 porosity analysis, part to CAD comparisons, part to part comparisons, reverse engineering, wall thickness, GD&T, fiber analysis, and assembly analysis. 2D X-Ray, cross sectional x-rays, and real time xray are also available.

    North Star Imaging, Inc. offers a complete line of state-of-the-art 2D Digital X-ray and 3D Computed Tomography (CT) systems for the industrial nondestructive testing industry, designed and built by highly trained innovative engineers. Through use of NSI’s industry leading, efX-CT software, their CT system speed and ease of use is unmatched in the industry. This software offers a simple 5-step, start-to-finish CT process, plus the ability to upgrade existing systems from DR to CT. An industrial CT scan can validate and qualify prototypes and the first printed parts for many different materials such as mold components, metal or plastic printed parts. CT scanning aids in manufacturing projects that require 100% validation of high value printed parts during production. Any failed parts or errors during production due to temperature change or stress, such as broken or chipped parts, can be examined and identified quickly through CT scanning. North Star Imaging also offers X-ray Inspection services. The group houses the most advanced X-ray/CT lab in the country and offers need based consulting services for anyone needing X-ray/CT scanning.

    We currently use a Rx-Solutions equipment : the EasyTom XL Duo which has been specifically designed to answer to the need of the University of Poitiers to scan a large range of size and composition samples. This “multi-scale” laboratory system is especially composed of two x-ray Hamamatsu sources (a directional sealed microfocus tube and a transmission nanofocus tubes cooled and equipped with a LaB6 cathod) coupled to a Varian PaxScan 2520DX detector (flatpanel with amorphous silicon and a CsI conversion screen, 1920×1536 matrix pixel; pixel pitch of 127µm; 16 bits of dynamic). In the near futur, this equipment will also be equipped with a high resolution camera (CCD/CMOS).
    The IC2MP (Institut of Chemistry) manages the equipment.
    It’s accessible to academic institutions and private companies.
