Note about the scanners that we sell: Scanners sold by Regent Instruments are tested and calibrated for greater precision. Scanners sold by Regent Instruments are tested for their image quality and calibrated to produce accurate measurements. These scanners have been tested on roots to eliminate the problem of shadowing. The root positioning system has been designed specifically for the scanners we sell and may not work on other models.
