Faxitron - CellRad X-Ray Irradiation System | Faxitron Bioptics LLC


Faxitron's CellRad is a dedicated, compact cabinet X-ray cell irradiator which can be placed directly on the lab bench top - no need to transport your cells to a core irradiation facility.

The CellRad system allows you to irradiate cells in your lab without compromising sterility or security.  The simple touch-screen control panel makes the CellRad easy to use for those with no x-ray training.

A smaller, simpler, safer and less costly alternative to radioisotope (gamma) and even high-power X-ray irradiators.  There are no costly licensing, security, or source maintenance fees.
