Fast, safe and effective

RADGIL2 is an X-RAY irradiator specifically designed to prevent Transfusion Associated- Graft versus Host Disease (TA-GvHD), a rare but often fatal reaction caused by the donors’ Lymphocytes-T when grafted into a recipient with a transfused blood product. RADGIL2 is an effective, modern and safer alternative to the irradiators based on a nuclear source such as Caesium137.

RADGIL2 is safe, easy to use and fast. Because the dose of ionizing radiation generated by the RADGIL2 can be easily adjusted, the machine can also be used for several research applications such as for the irradiation of:

  • Cells and Tissues
  • Bone marrow ablation on lab animals
  • Other generic applications for research purposes


Cabinet Features

  • In the emo configuration it can treat up to 6 bags containing each 300ml of blood components
  • It can deliver 7Gy/min on a volume of 1800ml
  • It is equipped with a rotating basket to guarantee best dose homogeneity
  • A dose of 30 Gray requires about 5 minutes
  • In the non-emo configuration the X-ray source is adjustable in two positions, high and low, to optimize the irradiation area


Interface Features

  • Wide colour touch screen display with on-line status
  • Lockable settings panel
  • X-Ray chamber with triple safety lock sliding door
  • Optional label printer and barcode scanner

With blood products (bags)

  • Up to 1.800ml volume or up to six bags
  • Rotating canister for best homogenous irradiation is standard
  • A dose of 25 Gray (adjustable) requires about 5 minutes

With other products

  • Rotating canister can be removed
  • Max irradiation area is equal to a circle of 29cm Ø
  • Max height of sample to load into the chamber is 29cm
  • Optional aluminium or copper X-Ray filters can be applied


Dosimetry Measurement

Internal sensor

  • Solid state sensor inside the X-Ray chamber
  • A self-diagnostic test is performed at each start-up or every 8 hours
  • Internal cross matching with previously stored mapped energy is continuously performed. An acoustic alarm with written displayed warning appears if deviations are found
