An Economical X-ray Based Irradiator with High Dose Uniformity and Precision

A cabinet style irradiator employing standard commercially available x-ray components in a novel configuration that allows for precise dosimetry in real-time along with unprecedented uniformity of radiation dose among samples.

Benefits
• Substitute for gamma irradiation using radioisotope-based sources and subsequent reduction in cost, regulations, and safety concerns for operators
• High dose precision and uniformity
• High reliability and proven ruggedness

Applications
• Insect sterilization for Sterile Insect Control technique
• Irradiation of small samples such as seeds, nuts, grain, sprouts or rice
