The extra-high radiation volume enables irradiation of up to 20 blood bags in one single cycle and the use of a wide variety of special containers. With the BIOBEAM 8000, two positions are available for the beakers. The position for smaller beakers are closer to the source and receive a higher dose rate. Therefore the irradiation period can be halved, when irradiating smaller volumes.
The oscillation of the source provides an optimum dose distribution within the full irradiation volume. A dose difference of less than 10% can be realised by using special irradiation inserts.
BIOBEAM blood irradiation systems are fully protected devices with-less than 3 uSv/h surface dose rate. This means that no additional radiation protection measures are necessary. Also there is no radiation surveillance required for staff, e.g. your personnel has not to be equipped with dosimeters.
The safety functions of the BIOBEAM guarantee highest safety, e.g. the monitoring system, which controls the irradiation period, the oscillation of the source, the rotation of the irradiation load, the position of the rotary shielding and the irradiation beaker closure.
