X-Ray Irradiation Facility

RS320 X–Ray Research System

The Xstrahl RS320 X-Ray irradiator enables safe irradiation of in vitro and in vivo biological samples within a laboratory environment. Meeting the needs of medical and biological research, the RS320 incorporates the irradiation chamber and system electronics in two separate cabinet enclosures. X-ray ionizing radiation is produced by a controllable electronic system; the Xstrahl RS320 provides a safer, simpler and less costly alternative to radioisotope irradiators for radiation exposure studies.

Presently the system is available for in vitro irradiations and some limited (non-mammalian) in vivo irradiations. In vivo irradiation of rodent models will be available shortly.
