As of September 2019, we have decided to discontinue the sales of the Octopus Reconstruction software. We are grateful to have served you with Octopus Reconstruction for your imaging and research efforts over the past years, and we sincerely thank you for your business and engagement as a community.

Our decision comes as a result of an accelerated shift in our business focus towards the development, deployment and support of our dynamic micro-CT platforms at TESCAN XRE. This has been driven by the demands and exciting opportunities we see in the evolving landscape of X-ray tomography, and we look forward to leading and serving the community in this space for years to come.

For existing customers

To minimize the impact on our existing customers, we will continue to offer:

  • New license sales to existing users until December 31st, 2019.
  • Basic support and critical bug fixes until December 31st, 2020 to any customer who currently holds a valid update/service agreement.
  • An option to extend an expired update/service agreement if the expiration date is less than 12 months ago. This offer is valid until December 31st, 2019.

For new customers

Licenses are no longer available for new customers.

Downloads and support

Until December 31st, 2020 license holders can access the Octopus Helpdesk to access downloads and to get support.
