Rad Source Technologies (Buford, GA, USA), a supplier of commercial X-ray radiation products designed to replace self-shielded gamma irradiators, highlighted its newly redesigned RS 3400 Blood Irradiator at MEDLAB Middle East 2021.

Blood transfusion is a lifesaving procedure for people who are bleeding and people who cannot make a sufficient amount of blood on their own. A rare but almost always fatal complication from blood transfusion is called transfusion-associated graft-versus-host disease (TA-GVHD), where immune cells from the donor blood attack the recipient’s organs and cause a deadly infection that is nearly impossible to fight off.

Over 20 years ago, Rad Source pioneered the first-ever FDA-approved blood X-ray irradiation medical device used to prevent TA-GVHD, and has maintained its status as the industry leader and gold-standard in blood irradiation technology and instrumentation ever since. The company’s patented X-ray irradiation technology effectively and routinely inactivates the immune cells in donor blood, which diminishes the risk of developing TA-GVHD for the transfusion recipient.

The RS 3400 is the first FDA cleared blood irradiation device with the highest product throughput and volume available. It processes a variety of blood configurations of up to 6L capacity in 5 minutes - whole blood bags, platelet bags and loaded syringes in the same cycle. Combination of the patented Quastar X-ray emitter, rotating carousel, and new canister with support inserts may achieve as low as 1.5 DUR. Radiation safety features of the RS 3400 include redundant safety interlocks to prevent intrusion in to the radiation chamber while in operation. The unit is a cabinet X-ray device that has external emissions far below the federal standard for such devices.
