Irradiation of in vivo and in vitro biological systems can be used as a therapeutic regimen to evaluate effects on tumor growth. It can also be used as a research tool to study the harmful effects of radiation on these systems.
Charles River administers radiation as a therapy using a Faxitron® Model CP-160 instrument. This capability enables the use of radiation for:
- Combination radiation/chemotherapy
- Tumor targeted radiation- focused to specific anatomical site
- In vitro applications
