Bruker and iTomography Corporation Announce License Agreement for iTomo Image Reconstruction Software
Bruker and iTomography Corporation today announced they have entered into a multi-year license agreement for the patented technology invented by Dr. Alexander Katsevich, iTomography’s Chief Technology Officer and a professor at the University of Central Florida. This will give Bruker non-exclusive rights to the software for performing CT imaging using the theoretically exact image reconstruction algorithm iTomo®.
In the near-term, exact helical reconstruction will be available on number of SkyScan™ instruments produced by Bruker microCT. Dr. Michael Frenkel, CEO of iTomography, stated: “Bruker is a leading worldwide provider of microCT imaging systems, and we are proud to have iTomography’s disruptive CT technologies utilized by Bruker’s customers worldwide for biomedical, pre-clinical, material science, geological, and other applications. iTomography believes that practical utilization of licensed technologies will improve the quality of imaging and expand the spectrum of applications of microtomography and nanotomography scanners.”
Dr. Alexander Sasov, CEO of Bruker microCT, stated: “Our goal is to provide researchers with the best imaging instruments. Using licensed exact helical reconstruction algorithms allow significant improvement in 3D metrological accuracy of results and offer various enhancements in application areas to satisfy the needs of our customers”.

Vaccines Are Not Protecting Farmed Fish From DiseaseNews
The vaccines used by commercial fish farmers are not protecting fish from disease, according to a new study. It showed vaccinated fish tend to show more symptoms when contracting diseases, with the health impacts and ultimately deaths occurring as if they’d never received a vaccine.READ MORE
Microbubbles Could Help Remove Dental BiofilmsNews
Scientists have conducted a study to look for better ways for dentists to remove plaque and prevent complications. The team studied the efficiency of a cavitating jet, where high-speed fluid is injected by a nozzle through water to create very tiny bubbles of vapour. When these bubbles collapse, they produce strong shockwaves that are able to remove contaminants like bacterial biofilms.READ MORE
