Biomedical Science Building X-ray Irradiator

The Biomedical Science Building rodent barrier facility contains an x-ray irradiator that is available for use by PI’s. The X-RAD 320 is a self-contained X-ray system for delivering a precise, whole body radiation dosage to specimens in a biological or small animal research laboratory.

ACS is no longer performing irradiations. Please see instructions below for training, access and approval to run irradiations.

For access to the BMS irradiator you must:

  • Have rodents housed in the BMS barrier facility or request access for cell irradiation
  • Have completed all facility access requirements
  • Submit an access request form for “BMS – Irradiator Use” (see step #4 at the facility access link above)
  • Once your PI approves the request, the ACS Front Office will verify that you’ve met the access requirements
  • The ACS Front Office will then notify Susan Stanford sstanford@ehs.ufl.edu with EH&S that you are cleared for training and she will arrange for a time to meet with you
