The Archaic X-Ray Imaging Tube
Modern Day X-Ray – Stuck in the Past
What if in more than 125 years, x-ray technology had not improved? X-ray tube technology used today was developed in 1895 and has since been used mainly for dental and bone imaging applications to allow medical practitioners to view internal structures of the human body without needing to perform invasive surgery.
While there have been tremendous advances in medicine and life sciences, such as in MRI technology and cancer detection, little has been done to evolve x-ray technology addressing improved processing speeds and expansion into biological sciences applications.
While still acceptable for imaging applications, the old technology is not as effective as Quastar® for life sciences applications.
the x-ray reinvented™
Enabling the Transition
Quastar®, the world’s most advanced and reliable x-ray emitter technology, was patented by Rad Source to revolutionize the x-ray market for biological sciences applications. Quastar technology is a through-transmission x-ray emitter that produces a larger, stronger, and higher-energy photon field with improved uniformity. This provides higher treatment consistency, faster processing times, and fewer undesired consequences on targets (e.g., sun burns).
Quastar is the leader in pioneering x-ray technology used in cannabis remediation and sterile insect technique (SIT). Quastar® is the premiere x-ray technology used for blood irradiation, and its use is rapidly expanding into the cell irradiation.
Our mission is to become the world leader in creating x-ray technologies and solutions that enable our customers to improve the world through life science.
Pioneering the Way in Non-Nuclear Irradiation
Rad Source is a global life science leader developing proprietary x-ray technologies. We provide safe,
proven and reliable x-ray solutions that help address humanity’s most challenging issues.
