GSRB2 320

X-ray tube

The GSRB X-RAD320 is located in the GSRB barrier facility. It has a 320kV x-ray tube that is collimated to allow a 20cm x20 cm field at 50cm FSD. There is a removable shelf which allows a more expansive field. A filter port located between the tube and collimator allows the addition of beam conditioning filters providing specific HVLs. The facility has F1, F2 and F4 filters available. This instrument is used primarily for small animal irradiations. In order to gain unescorted access to this instrument, a researcher should first undergo a GSRB2 barrier facility orientation. Once access to the barrier facility has been granted, the researcher should contact Ken Young for hands on training. Confirmation of this training will then be sent to Radiation Safety, who will review the application and grant the access. This process usually takes about seven business days.
