The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin and YXLON International are entering into a unique industrial cooperation with the aim of adapting current 3D X-ray technology to the problems of collecting natural history collections. The computer tomograph provided (YXLON FF35 CT dual tube system) can scan larger objects than previously possible - e.g. complete dinosaur vertebrae. The aim of the cooperation is the joint further development of common analysis methods and workflows of 3D X-ray technology for adaptation to the problems of capturing natural history collections in single object digitisation and their multimedia presentation of results.

Starting from October 4th, 2018 visitors can have a glance into the new CT-Lab and enter into dialogue with the scientists.
