Nanoct Computed Tomography
NANOCT RESEARCH IN THE JEPSEN LABORATORY
The GE nanotom m nanoCT system is extremely versatile and allows us to acquire images ranging in size from mouse bone to human bone and ranging in tissue density from cartilage to bone to metals. The nanoCT has four scanning modes, and with a nanofocus tube, can reach resolutions as low as 0.5 microns.
If you are interested in collaborating with the Jepsen Laboratory for nanoCT capabilities, please contact Karl at firstname.lastname@example.org
NEED SAMPLES SCANNED? CONTACT OUR NANOCT IMAGING CORE
These protocols were designed for a GE nanoTom S system, they are being updated to work with the Core's new GE nanoTom M system. If you have a different microCT or nanoCT system, you will need to adjust the protocol. (Clicking on links below will open the protocol .pdf file in a new window)
Mouse nanoCT protocols
- Protocol for scanning adult mouse femurs
- Protocol for scanning adult mouse lumbar vertebrae
- Protocol for scanning developing mouse femurs (Will be uploaded soon, please check back)
- Protocol for scanning developing mouse lumbar vertebrae (Will be uploaded soon, please check back)

The GE Nanotom M is the nanoCT system used by the Jepsen Laboratory. This versatile system allows us to scan specimens ranging from developing mouse bones to large segments of human bone. We have also used the system to do nanoCT scans of bugs, plants, birds, and electronic components.
