The MicroCTvlab is a service which was created in order to present and disseminate micro-CT (micro-computed tomography) datasets through the LifeWatchGreece project.

This service offers virtual galleries and online tools for the 3D manipulation of micro-CT datasets. The creation and dissemination of these "cyber-specimens" aim to contribute to a large-scale digitisation of biological collections.
