Biomedical Science Building X-Ray Irradiator

ACS provides x-ray irradiation for research needs as a service for PI’s. The Biomedical Science Building rodent barrier facility contains a MultiRad 350 irradiator, which is a self-contained x-ray unit delivering a precise, whole-body radiation dosage to specimens in a biological or small animal research laboratory.

To have ACS perform irradiations, you must:

  • Have animals housed in the BMS barrier facility or cells for irradiation
  • Have irradiation detailed in an approved IACUC protocol
  • Submit an X-Ray Irradiator Request Form

If your animals cannot be housed in BMS, please contact the ACS Front Office to discuss other irradiation options.
