The Biomedical beamline of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility has recently implemented and commissioned a new experimental setup dedicated to micro-tomography. This new setup combines the advantages of using the X-ray propagation phase-contrast imaging technique with a polychromatic spectrum, the so called pink beam. Owing of the very high photon flux of ID17 pink beam, within this new system it is possible to perform computed tomographic scans with a pixel size of 0.7 $\mu$m. An overview of the possibilities offered and performances of this newly installed imaging station will be presented in details.
