Quantum GX3 microCT System

This product replaces the Quantum GX2 (part # CLS149276)

The Quantum GX3 - advanced microCT system for ex vivo and in vivo imaging. The versatile Quantum GX3 microCT offers the flexibility researchers need by delivering the functionality to perform longitudinal studies, across a wide range of species, with fast, low-dose scanning and superior spatial resolution.

For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.


The Quantum GX3 system represents the latest advances in microCT imaging with superior image resolution, high speed, low-dose, and flexibility.

With the combination of higher resolution, increased field of view (FOV) range, and enhanced image-based respiratory and cardiac gating, the Quantum GX3 low-dose microCT system enables researchers to gain a better understanding of healthy and diseased tissue in a broad range of areas including bone, respiratory, cardiovascular, liver/kidney, brain, and oncology research.

Superior Spatial Resolution

The Quantum GX3 microCT system offers exceptionally high spatial resolution down to 5 µm and pixel size of 2.86 µm (at 8 mm field of view) enabling high image quality of ex vivo biological samples, small bones and fine anatomical structures in vivo in greater detail.

Wide FOV Range

With a wide range of field of view (FOV), the Quantum GX3 gives you the flexibility needed to choose the right balance of resolution and pixel size depending on the size of the specimen or part of the animal needing to be imaged.

The variable FOV ranging from 8 mm for imaging ex vivo biological samples, to the largest FOV of 86 mm, ideal for imaging lungs of larger animals in a single scan, the Quantum GX3 is the most versatile microCT on the market.

Improved Image-based Gating

Accurate microCT reconstructions often require reducing motion artifacts due to cardiac and respiratory motion. Using a retrospective two-phase image-based gating technique, the Quantum GX3 enables superior cardiac and lung function measurements for a range of species, including mice, rats, and ferrets.

Two Scanning Modes

With the Quantum GX3, researchers have the option of selecting either continuous scanning mode for high throughput fast image acquisition or step scanning mode for higher resolution imaging.

Easy Co-registration

Seamless co-registration of data from the Quantum GX3 can be easily combined with readouts from Revvity’s IVIS® 3D optical system providing more comprehensive insights into the molecular and anatomical features of diseased and healthy biology in the same subject.

Analysis at Your Fingertips

With the convenience of the touchscreen monitor, data capture and analysis on the Quantum GX3 has never been easier. Reconstructions are automatically created within seconds of scanning and basic analysis tools allow you to visualize tissue densities, make quantitative measurements, and export for further analysis in DICOM format. Compliment your microCT data and take your analysis to the next level with Analyze 14.0 software for advanced imaging visualization and measurements.
