Advanced Imaging for Artworks

Art-Test investigations on the Poliptych of Saint Catherine, by Simone Martini at Museo Nazionale San Matteo of Pisa

Art-Test leading the field, and working together with major research institute worldwide is able to offer the most advanced imaging techniques


We make available to private and public customer our SIGNATURE METHODS like:

    • INTRAVEDO ®  InGaAs scanninghaving the highest resolution with best contrast available worldwide
    • CCD MULTISPECTRAL Acquisitionwe presented the first paper on Multispectral Imaging of Paintings together witht he University of Florence on the prestigious IEEE magazine in 2008 already
    • BROADBAND VIDICON Inspectionswe own one of the few remaining such device

  •  X-RAYS imaging (Digital or Analog), we offer a choice between such techniques

  • MACRO-MICRO (multispectral) imaging, we can have standard macro-micro imagining with a multimodal videomicroscope and an EXCLUSIVE multispectral macro imaging with a multispectral imaging


    we have two different devices to match your needs


At last scientific conference HERITECH, we presented a very new method, developed in collabo

ration with the National Institute of Applied Optic

s (CNR-INO), the University of Florence, the University La Sapienza of Rome and the Opificio delle Pietre Dure of Florence, now published on a journal:

A. Pelagotti, L. Pronti, E. Massa, M Galeotti, A. Felici, “Multispectral Reflectance and UV Fluorescence Microscopy to study painting’s cross sections”, IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering. 364. 012064. 10.1088/1757-899X/364/1/012064. (2018).

to acquire multispectral and multimodal imaging of painting sample cross-section, and being able to detect the paint binding media per layer.

We also offer the classical techniques:


  • Infrared Photography
  • False Colour Imaging
  • Raking light
  • Trans-illumination
