FEI’s Visualization Sciences Group (VSG) and North Star Imaging (NSI) have announced the signing of an OEM partnership agreement. North Star Imaging will offer VSG’s Avizo Fire high-end 3D visualisation and analysis software as an integrated component with its 3D X-ray scanning solutions.

NSI’s high-speed, high-resolution 3D Computed Tomography X-ray imaging systems will be enhanced by now also offering VSG’s ability to supply fast analysis and modelling of the collected data.

This combination provides the best in-class solutions by both companies and facilitates a wide range of research and development applications while improving in-line production testing.

Abigail Lape, research scientist in global food research group at Cargill, said: 'The collaboration ensures Cargill’s place on the forefront of providing complete solutions to our clients and customers in the areas of food research, safety and forensics.

'NSI ImagiX system provides imagery beyond basic visualisation to a level of high definition imaging which assists in revealing structure-function relationships in complex systems containing a wide range of components.

'In addition, the VSG Avizo Fire software package provides versatility in acquiring quantitative information giving us further insight often required for proper characterisation of these systems.'
