“We utilize the NSI X5000 MicroCT as the cornerstone first test in all of our geobiology scientific projects, from which we determine the spatial and temporal context for all of our ensuing microscopy-to-omics analyses. This is true for every one of our research projects, including: (1) using coral skeletons to gauge sea surface temperature through geological time; (2) timing of the last flow from travertine deposits in the ancient Roman aqueducts; (3) Yellowstone hot spring travertine as a biomarker to guide the search for life on other planets; (4) enhanced subsurface oil and gas exploration; and (5) and most recently, the pathogenesis of human kidney stone disease with the Mayo Clinic, which we call GeoBioMed.”

We look forward to having Dr. Bruce Fouke at our event in April!

Please join us for our 2020 X-ray Symposium to hear what Dr. Fouke has to say.
