A Convenient Choice for Blood Irradiation

Raycell Mk2 Efficient, convenient and user friendly, the Raycell® Mk2 X-ray Blood Irradiator provides a safe and cost-effective choice for blood irradiation – backed by Best® Theratronics’ trusted expertise and commitment to quality.  It delivers the required dose to help prevent TA-GVHD (Transfusion-Associated Graft-Versus-Host Disease).

Superior Performance &
Unparalleled Dose Uniformity

X-rays are produced by bombarding targets with electrons, which are accelerated in a vacuum through a high-voltage electrical field.  The dose is delivered by two opposing X-ray tubes with the sample canister located centrally between them.  The two cone-shaped beams ensure that a tight dose is delivered to the product and exceptional dose uniformity is attained.


Raycell Mk2 Cross Section
  • Larger canister size facilitates irradiating more blood bags – 2.0 L and 5.0 L (0.53 and 1.3 US Gallons).
  • Two opposing x-ray tubes deliver a uniform dose to the product.
  • Dose delivery is controlled by setting and monitoring the irradiation time, based on the central dose rate.
  • Irradiation time is controlled by two independent microprocessors.
  • Detailed dosimetry of the sample canister volume is obtained and provided at the time of installation.
  • Installation can take 1-3 days depending on individual installation and training requirements.

Irradiated Products Database Management (IPDM) System:

  • Scans and stores bar-coded information about the irradiated product (unit number, product code, blood type, etc.), irradiation cycle number, operator details, date/time stamp, and irradiation indicator verification.
  • Scans barcodes using ISBT 128 and ABC Codabar2 decoders, or as is without decoding.
  • Includes three modes of operation: product entry, cycle database review, and administration.
  • Performs additional verification of the irradiation time.
  • Stores up to 50,000 product entries of data in main database, and archives the rest.
  • Exports data conveniently onto a USB memory stick (1 stick provided, 2 USB ports).
  • Ensures efficient, error-free operation.
  • LIMS connection.
