Summary

A Spanish research centre, with activity in the field of human evolution, offers a non- destructive analysis of objects from different nature using an X-ray micro-computed tomography technical platform and seeks technical, research, and services agreements.

Description

The Spanish research centre, belongs to the national network of Unique Scientific & Technical Infrastructures (ICTS). It is open to scientific and technological use by the national and international scientific and technological community. Its research activities are mainly focus on human evolution, and include collaborative projects at excavations and deposits worldwide.

The centre has developed a system of quality management based on ISO 9001 standards and, in the case of testing laboratories, also on the ISO / IEC 17025 standards, as a tool for creating value for the organization and for users of the infrastructure.

The computed tomography technique offered is an X-ray imaging technique that allows scanning, exploration, and 3D modelling of samples. It is a non-destructive technique whose fundamental is the virtual reconstruction of sections of an object from the radiographs acquired along 360º.

The analysis of the output images provides qualitative and quantitative results in terms of density profile, defects inspections, particles dispersion, porosity, volume, dimensional control, etc.

The technique shows a wide field of application, being among others: materials science, biology, medicine, geology, archaeology, cultural heritage, etc.

The micro-computed tomography equipment scans samples with a maximum height of 42cm, a maximum diameter of 20cm, and a maximum weight of 10 Kg. It hosts two different tubes: the microfocus (240 KV, resolution = 1 micron) and the nanofocus (180KV, resolution = 0.5 microns).

With this technology, the user can get: the digital scanning in 2D and 3D of the part, advice on image analysis, digital image analysis, use, by the client, of image analysis software to analyse their data, etc.

The Spanish public institution is seeking for researchers, universities, research centers, and companies interested in using their facilities as well as to establish agreements and research projects with them.

Advantages and Innovations

The main advantage of the micro-computed tomography technique is its non-destructive nature, so that, you can analyse the piece, getting both, visual and numerical (quantitative) information of all its volume, without breaking it.

This aspect is very important in any research field, since you preserve the piece intact without having to destroy it.

Requested partner

The centre is looking for partners in the scientific and technological community, both academic and industry, that could be interested in the use of the micro-computed tomography technique to the analysis of their samples.

- Type: academic, research organisation, industries.

- Activity: research, industry, quality control, archaeology, cultural heritage, geology, biology, and medicine

- For technical cooperation and service agreements, the partner sought must be interested in the use of the micro-computed tomography technique to analyze their samples.
For research cooperation agreement, the centre seeks projects in which this technology can be applied.
