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
- Schedule Irradiator training with Susan Stanford email@example.com
- Submit an access request form for “BMS – Irradiator Use” once all above steps are complete https://my.acs.ufl.edu/access_request/access_request.aspx
