Areas of application:
Gamma-irradiation prevents the partitionability of immunocompetent cells. The transmission of these cells, without irradiation, can cause serious and often mortal complications – Graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD) – for immunodeficient patients.
Other fields of application
exist in the scope of radiobiological research:
The self-shielded GSR C1 contains up to 3 Cs-137 sources with a maximum total activity of 120 TBq. The half-life period of Cs-137 is about 30,2 years.
The entire GSR C1 operation is carried out easily using a touchscreen. This enables the direct selection of irrradiation programs by the simplest possible means. At the same time.
The dose rate of < 5 μSv/h at the surface of the irradiation device is far below the regulated limit value.
The safety functions of the GSR C1 guarantee highest safety, e.g. the monitoring system, which controls the irradiation period, the rotation of the irradiation load, the position of the rotary shielding and the irradiation beaker closure.
GSR C1 provides a variety of optional expansions to match the customer’s specific needs:
Our customer service
The user positions the irradiation good in the 3,8 l containing stainless steel irradiation canister and puts it in the rotatable irradiation chamber. The complete closure of the door and the position of canister are checked automatically. The opening of the door is not possible during irradiation.
At the operator panel you set the irradiation parameters. After the manual starting of irradiation the irradiation drum rotates 180° and the canister is located directly in front of the radiation sources. Parallel, the electronic control starts the rotary motion of the canister with ca. 20 rpm. Thus a homogeneous dose distribution in the irradiation canister is guaranteed. After operation time the irradiation chamber drives into the starting position and the rotation of the canister is stopped. The door can be opened and the canister can be taken out.
The irradiation device is delivered in a licensed B(U) type transport packaging.Scope of delivery:
