Radiation Ingenuity on your benchtop

A dedicated cabinet x-ray unit for cell irradiation, designed for placement directly on the lab benchtop.


The simple touch-screen control panel makes the CellRad easy to use for those with no x-ray training.


The CellRad system allows you to irradiate cells without compromising sterility or security, and serves as a smaller, simpler, safer and more cost-effective alternative to gamma radioisotope.
