The new measuring frame from Aesub brings components into position in just a few steps. The modular fixture set is used to create reference frames with a diameter of either 200 or 300mm. Articulated arms with clamps hold the components within the black frame so that they can be scanned from all perspectives. With a diameter of 200mm, the frame weighs only 500g. Therefore, the fixture can be held in one hand and measured freely with a hand-held scanner in the other hand. Since the material used is already black, there is no need for post-processing by coloring such as or anodizing. In addition to the standardized frame sizes, frames of up to 900mm are optionally available. All elements are housed in a case.
The Vial Scanner by Schäfter+Kirchhoff (www.sukhamburg.com) was developped for the in-situ imaging of Drosophila pupae and for automated measurement of their size.
