Radiation Application Development Co. can provide commercial irradiation services in range of low to high doses for various radiation applications. Microbiology, polymer, dosimetry, and food laboratories conduct inspections for quality control of services.
Our Company can provide commercial irradiation services in range of low doses (up to 10KGy) and high doses (up to 25KGy). Irradiation of foods significantly decreases the bacterial load and increases the shelf-life. Irradiation of cosmetics and disposable medical equipment are implemented for sterilization.
Irradiation of foods significantly decreases the bacterial load and increases the shelf-life. Irradiation of cosmetics and disposable medical equipment are implemented for sterilization. The products that can be irradiated at irradiation facility are as follows:
- Different types of food (in packages) including nuts, beans, seeds, spices, food powders.
- Cosmetics and pharmaceuticals
- Disposable medical equipment such as bandages, gauze sterile, cotton thread.
Laboratories can provide irradiation quality control services:
Microbiology and foods laboratories: The labs can provide microbial load measurement, appropriate minimum and maximum dose determination, and making decisions regarding the effects of irradiation on the products. These are equipped with laminar fume hoods, autoclaves, ovens, chemical hoods, incubators (generally CO2 with fridge), colony counters, and etc.
Polymer laboratory: material identification, determination of material strength against radiation, and maximum dose. This lab is equipped with Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), compression, thermal analysis (DSC), molecular mass calculation, and chemical hoods.
Dosimetry lab: measurement and control of irradiation process, determination of required irradiation time for foods and medical instruments and so on, equipped with EPR and spectrophotometer.
