Precision X-ray Announces Partnership with Gamma Irradiator Services

Partnership offers one-source sales, maintenance and disposal services for PXi and
Gamma Irradiator Services customers

NORTH BRANFORD, Conn., (Sept. 15, 2015) – Precision X-Ray, Inc. (PXi) is partnering with Gamma Irradiator Service, LLC to offer maintenance, disposal and decommissioning of CIS-US, JL Shepherd or Best Theratronics (Nordion) source irradiators. These services will be available in conjunction with the purchase of new X-RAD X-ray irradiators. The agreement between PXi and Gamma Irradiator Service allows both companies to provide complete service from sale to installation of X-RAD X-ray irradiators. Once the purchase of a new irradiator from PXi is complete, Gamma Irradiator Service will assist in the removal of existing gamma-based irradiation systems (source irradiators).

Gamma Irradiator Service is familiar with all the regulations regarding the disposal and decommissioning of source irradiators, and has the necessary security clearances to complete the job. This new partnership will allow for customers to experience a smoother transition from an old-source irradiator to a new PXi X-Rad X-ray system.

“We wanted to work in conjunction with an industry leader in the X-ray field that has excelled in customer service and technology while also providing top of the line systems. We feel that the PXi systems are superior to anything on the market and are very excited for what the future will hold between our two companies,” said Doyle Stout, president, Gamma Irradiator Service, LLC. “We are looking forward to offering the PXi line of products to our customers that have made the decision to switch from gamma irradiators.”

As part of the agreement, Gamma Irradiator Service will also assist in the sale of X-Rad systems when removing source irradiators from non-PXi customers.

“The new service capabilities that this partnership provides will help many of our customers who are trying to make the switch from gamma-based irradiation systems to X-ray irradiation for their research,” said Bill McLaughlin, president, Precision X-ray. “Gamma Irradiator Service is one of the only companies that is certified to provide service to the full range of Gamma irradiators currently used in the research market today.”

Further information about the products and services provide by both companies can be found on their websites, Precision X-Ray or Gamma Irradiator Services.
