Non Isotopic irradiators offer a cost effective alternative to isotope based irradiation. Using high energy X-ray levels for irradiation also enables irradiation in accurate repeatable monitored doses, overall increasing operator safety and contributing to procedure unity.


The XCELL irradiator series from Kubtec offers non isotopic irradiators in various sizes in order to best fit your specific needs. the units are fully shielded and contain a high-frequency electrically generated x-ray source that requires no NRC licensing. A user friendly software allows easy control of dose, time formats, and other operating modes for easy operation of the units, even without prior X-ray training.

Non Isotopic Irradiation

So Where is the Technological Twist?


XCELL irradiators are truly mobile units. the various sizes enable their deployment in a variety of locations and for a variety of applications, ranging from animal, food, cell, and seed irradiation to component irradiation for scientific and commercial environments. The high-frequency X-ray source enables precise and repeated irradiation procedures for maximal effectiveness and efficiency.
