MultiRad 160
MultiRad 160

The smaller, simpler, safer alternative to radioisotope irradiators. Faxitron's MultiRad160 is ideal for irradiating larger cell cultures and/or superficial small animal irradiation.

The MultiRad160 is a fully-shielded, self-contained x-ray irradiator that can be used almost anywhere, by anyone. There are no costly licensing, security, or source maintenance fees, providing a much lower total cost of ownership than radioisotope irradiators.

The fully integrated system includes turntable with programmable dosimeter, touch screen control panel and closed-loop cooling.
