X-RAD 350 Series

Biological Irradiator

Precision X-Ray, PXi, X-RAD 350, X-ray system for precise radiation dosage to specimens. Small animal or biological research

Overview

The X-RAD 350 is a self-contained X-ray system for delivering a precise radiation dosage to specimens in a biological or small animal research laboratory.

The shielded cabinet includes an Adjustable Specimen Shelf, Sample Viewing Window and Beam Hardening Filter Holder.

The TouchRAD Control Panel is a multi-user, password protected touch screen interface with a transportable database that can track individual system usage.

Passwords, programmed exposure settings, and database management are controlled by a super-user.

The X-ray tube is used specifically for radiation therapy having a highly homogenous beam.

Options available include: Holding Fixtures, Dose Measurement & Control, Motorized Specimen Shelf, Turntable, Fixed Beam Collimators, Adjustable Collimator, and Specimen Holding Fixtures

Features

  • Automatic warm-up with Intelligent Tube Conditioning
  • Proven long term reliability of system components
