X-RAD225 | Precision - Accurate, Reliable, Repeatable : Precision

Home / Products / X-RAD Range / X-RAD225 XL & IR

For all cell, tissue and small animal irradiation studies

The X-RAD225 XL provides mid range energy for high and low dose rate irradiation studies in the largest available irradiation chamber, while maintaining a very small laboratory footprint.


Easily installed with wheeled transport through all standard 32” (81cm) doorways, the complete system includes high precision X-ray generators and tubes in a state-of-the-art, fully shielded FDA-compliant cabinet.


The largest 225kV chamber accommodates the widest range of system options including environmental and mouse anesthesia chambers, large motorized turntable, X/Y targeting table, and the OptiMax Multimodal Imaging Module.


Featuring our TouchRad control panel - a multi-user, password protected touchscreen interface - the X-RAD225 XL includes a transportable database that can track individual system usage for billing or review purposes.
