XCELL Irradiator Applications
Accurate, reliable, repeatable results saving time and improving efficiency
Tissue Culture Irradiation
Invoking DNA damage responses allows researchers the ability to conduct novel research in the reconstitution of damaged tissues and organs of different cell types.
Process of subjecting cells to radiation at various doses. The development of specialized cell models for the study of cellular immune systems is an important activity in the lab. While the creation of APC’s, hybridomas, and feeder cells are critical in maintaining the health of stem cells culture during research, development, and differentiation.
Preclinical research is conducted in animals to investigate effects of therapeutic drugs or diseases that can be induced by radiation.
Sterile Insect Technique
Advanced biological control utilizing irradiation to perform sterile insect technique (SIT). Sterilization via irradiation involves mass rearing to regulate insect population, preventing procreation.
Inactivation of bacteria and fungi are critical to preservation of artifacts stored in museums or archives. Ionizing radiation can kill these bacteria to increase preservation.
X-ray Virus Inactivation
X-ray Radiation is an alternative to gamma radiation for viral vaccine creation. It allows for optimizing irradiation that can be used in downstream detection while preserving valuable biochemical and immunological properties for research opportunities in a safe, reproducible manner.
Irradiators can eb used in immunotherapy to assess the effects of radiation on different types of cancer cells in lab. Radiation has the potential to become a critical component of systemic therapy in cancer cells.
Cancer Research – X-ray radiation is ideal for mimicking the adverse effects of cancer cells to allow researchers the ability to test novel research techniques.
Flash Radiation – Research designed to study toxic radiation in healthy tissue with minimal exposure.
Radiation Injury – To accurately study therapy efficiency studying damaged tissue.
Physics Research – Provides a research and application platform for medical physics and radiation in vivo and in vitro.
