The RS 3400 Blood Irradiator
THE PREMIER X-RAY BLOOD IRRADIATOR IN THE WORLD PROVIDING SUPERIOR UNIFORMITY AND INDUSTRY LEADING RELIABILITY.
Rad Source In Action
Blood transfusion is a lifesaving procedure for people who are bleeding and people who cannot make a sufficient amount of blood on their own. A rare but almost always fatal complication from blood transfusion is called transfusion-associated graft-versus-host disease (TA-GVHD), where immune cells from the donor blood attack the recipient’s organs and cause a deadly infection that is nearly impossible to fight off.
Over 20 years ago, we pioneered the first-ever FDA-approved blood x-ray irradiation medical device used to prevent TA-GVHD, and we have maintained our status as the industry leader and gold-standard in blood irradiation technology and instrumentation ever since. Our patented x-ray irradiation technology effectively and routinely inactivates the immune cells in donor blood, which diminishes the risk of developing TA-GVHD for the transfusion recipient.
Highest Throughput Available
Up to 6L capacity in 5 minutes with multiple product flexibility in same cycle – whole blood, platelets and loaded syringes.
One Day Plug & Play Installation
No water or drain connection to the facility is needed, providing improved workflow efficiency with flexible unit placement. and saving costs.
Direct Replacement for Gamma Irradiator
U.S. Government recognized safe, direct alternative – for radioactive isotope (gamma) source irradiators.
*RS 3400 is US-FDA cleared and CE marked.
Features & Benefits
High X-Ray Output - High Throughput
Produces a high x-ray output and has a large field, providing advantageous configurations for high throughput and dose rate.
Larger Field - Better Uniformity
No need to collimate the beam, and due to the larger field a better uniformity can be achieved compared to imaging tube x-ray technology.
Beam Hardness - Built in Filtration
Quastar has filtration built into the design of the x-ray emitter – designed to attenuate weaker non-penetrating x-rays.
Power Efficiency – Increased Life Span
The Quastar emitter runs at less than maximum power which increases lifetime up to 10 years – up to 3X longer than the standard imaging x-ray tube x-ray.
Repairable Energy Source - Low Cost of Ownership
· Engineered to be repairable, lowers overall cost of ownership.
· Standard imaging tube x-ray sources require full replacement.
No Radioactive Source – Direct Replacement for Gamma
· Meets safety requirements – CDRH 21 CFR Chapter 1 Subchapter J
· No Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) License required.
· No disposal requirements for nuclear.
· No additional cost for security compliance.
· No additional cost for safety related to nuclear source.
Patented Carousel Technology – Unmatched Uniformity
· Proprietary technology stabilizes the loaded canisters around the x-ray
source to provide unmatched dose uniformity.
· Holds combination of (1) to (6) blood product bags or syringes.
One Day Plug & Play Installation
Self-contained, onboard cooling, no water or drain connection to the
facility is needed, providing improved workflow efficiency through flexible
Mounted on sturdy castor wheels for convenient portability improving product workflow efficiency.
