The X-Rad 320 offers a large chamber within a compact cabinet footprint. A self-contained x-ray system designed to deliver a precise radiation dosage to specimens from cells to small animals such as mice, rats and rabbits. The x-ray tube is used specifically for radiation therapy, having a highly homogenous beam. Featuring TouchRad control panel - a multi-user, password protected touchscreen interface - the X-Rad 320 includes a transportable database that can track individual system usage.

The OptiMax System:

Optical and x-ray imaging for improved 2D IGRT targeting

The OptiMax Multimodal Imaging Module is designed to fit into the irradiation chamber of the X-RAD 320. 

The OptiMAX provides researchers with the only high energy X-ray irradiation system that will perform both optical and X-ray imaging of their cells, tissues or animals for pre-treatment image guided localization of target tissues and for post treatment diagnostics of results at a molecular and functional level.


The X-RAD 320 system is located at the SPF animal facility. 

To reserve this instrument, please use the BookIt Lab system.
