Application Innovation Centre

Overview

Our European Application Innovation Centre is a highly specialised technology showroom, located in Munich, Germany, where visitors can explore our advanced photon counting imaging products and develop tailored solutions for their medical and industrial applications.

The Centre has been designed around test and demonstration opportunities. Experts are on hand to work with you at the crucial initial stages of product development, thereby avoiding costly evaluations at point of delivery further down the line.

This extensive lab and office space provides product testing opportunities. Here, we can also trial our new imaging technologies and offer applications training in our fully- equipped meeting areas.

Our spacious first floor showroom gives you the chance to discover the potential of our products through demonstrations and presentations, and examine our end-user system equipment.

Seminars and workshops

The Centre will be a hub for the exchange of ideas, where experts from Direct Conversion, industry, medicine and academia will come together for a continuing programme of workshops, seminars and symposia. These events will be focused on the very latest developments in photon counting X-ray imaging and how this is a transformative technology.

Direct Conversion encourages interested members of the industrial and academic communities to use the facility as a shared space for their own explorations into applications of this technology. We aim to open discussions and facilitate collaborations in order to refine and expand our portfolio of products.
