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 350 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.

For access to the BMS irradiator you must:

  • Have rodents housed in the BMS barrier facility or request access for cell irradiation
  • Complete the Online BMS Irradiator Training
  • Contact the IACUC office to schedule the hands-on portion of the Irradiator Training
  • Have completed all facility access requirements
  • Submit an access request form for “BMS – Irradiator Use”
  • Once your PI approves the request, the ACS Front Office will verify that you’ve met the access requirements

If your animals can not be housed in BMS you can reach out to EHS to discuss other irradiation options on campus by contacting Susan Stanford sstanford@ehs.ufl.edu Office phone: 352-294-1020
