Small Animal Irradiation

The RS 2000 is the industry standard for whole body small animal irradiation for bone marrow ablation in mice. It will not cause skin burns on animals and has a 94% or greater dose uniformity.

The RS 2000 Biological Research Irradiator is ideal for the irradiation of small animals for myeloablation/chimera creation. This unit, in use throughout the world, uses the same technology as the Rad Source RS 3000 blood irradiator which is considered by the FDA to be “Substantially equivalent” to Cesium-137 gamma irradiators for the irradiation of blood and blood products . The dose rate delivered to the animal cage is ~ 110 cGy/min, which is the same as a new Cs-137 unit.
