RADGIL2 is an X-ray irradiator specifically designed to prevent Transfusion Associated- Graft versus Host Disease (TA-GvHD), a rare but often fatal reaction caused by the donors’ Lymphocytes-T when grafted into a recipient with a transfused blood product. RADGIL2 is an effective, modern and safer alternative to the irradiators based on a nuclear source such as Caesium137.
RADGIL2 is safe, easy to use and fast. Because the dose of ionizing radiation generated by the RADGIL2 can be easily adjusted, the machine can also be used for several research applications such as for the irradiation of:
RADGIL2® is a specially designed X-ray radiator designed and built to prevent Transfusion Associated Graft Versus Host Disease (TA-GVHD), a rare one but often fatal reaction caused by T lymphocytes of the donor when transferred to the recipient through a transfusion of blood components. By now, X-ray irradiation represents the method official and safer to prevent TA-GVHD and replace Cesio 137 irradiators, historically used for same purpose. The cesium irradiators present several problems, including the fact that the isotopes they contain they remain active and dangerous for decades. In addition they require specific skills from the operator in addition to additional security measures. RADGIL2®, on the other hand, is a completely safe system, simple to use, quick and extremely effective. RADGIL2® is also indicated for use in the field of research, including irradiation of cells and tissues, of small ones animals or for other laboratory tests. The standard configuration of RADGIL2® includes a system rotating for the treatment of blood bags with two types of baskets. The baskets can have 3 or 4 compartments and can simultaneously receive up to 6 bags of blood components. The necessary dose of X-rays to be emitted, it can be varied and programmed by changing the parameters of the machine. The estimated dose appears on the monitor and, once the treatment has started, a bar shows the time remaining for the completion of the treatment.
